Michelle Murrain, Nonprofit Open Source Initiative

The Nonprofit Open Source Initiative (NOSI) recently launched an updated version of its excellent guide, "Choosing and Using Free and Open Source Software: A Primer for Nonprofits." Michelle Murrain, who is coordinator of NOSI and a strategic technology consultant, will lead a discussion on the ethical and philosophical implications for nonprofits. She describes her approach to technology as "conscious, minimalist, neo-luddite."

At the conclusion of the Ethos Roundtable session, we will stroll down the hall to enjoy the good company, food, and drink at the 501 Tech Club that is so generously underwritten by TechFoundation. The 501 Tech Club is the monthly gathering of technology professionals who work with nonprofit organizations.

All Ethos Roundtable attendees are welcome at the Boston 501 Tech Club, and vice versa.

There's no need to make a reservation to attend Ethos Roundtable events. However, if you're planning to attend the Boston 501 Tech Club event at 6:00 pm, we ask that you send an email to Kathleen Sherwin of TechFoundation (ksherwin AT techfoundation DOT org).

Please join us!
