The Wilson Nonprofit Report for May 9

The Wilson Nonprofit Report

Is your nonprofit using TrustRadius to rate and review software yet? If a pizza joint gets 1000 reviews, why shouldn’t a nonprofit software product have some? That is the simple premise of TrustRadius.

I recently caught up with Vinay Bhagat, Founder of  Convio. As most of you know, his company was acquired last May and he has started a new company called TrustRadius. TrustRadius is a new business social network designed to help professionals share intelligence about enterprise technologies. As you know, it can be really difficult to get candid, robust intelligence on products so I think the idea has a lot of merit. Their initial focus is on business applications – mostly SAAS. They have just launched a public beta and are looking for professionals knowledgeable about different applications to participate. I just signed up for their private beta last fall and encourage you to join now that it is public.  To register and start reading or writing reviews, visit www.trustradius.com, click on Join.  More

Collaboration gone wild? Is this what collaboration looks like in your organization?  More

Use your personal smartphone for work email? Your company might take it If you use your personal smartphone or tablet to read work email, your company may have to seize the device some day, and you may not get it back for months. Employees armed with a battery of smartphones and other gadgets they own are casually connecting to work email and other employer servers. It’s a less-than-ideal security arrangement that technology pros call BYOD — bring your own device.

Now, lawyers are warning there’s an unforeseen consequence of BYOD. If a company is involved in litigation — civil or criminal — personal cellphones that were used for work email or other company activity are liable to be confiscated and examined for evidence during discovery or investigation.  More

    The device is also very light, weighing slightly less than 3
    oz. A montage specially edited for the occasion works best.
    Make sure you get a decent resolution LCD with any camera in this category.
