Houston NetSquared event tonight — Technology nerds and non-profit groups unite

Net2Houston.jpg

The Houston NetSquared group is a new group dedicated to helping non-profit organizations get connected with the Awesome Power of the Internet in All of Its Techie Glory.

There are so many easy-to-use and cheap/free techologies available to non-profit organizations.

The NetSquared mission is to help non-profits not only find these beneficial technologies, but empower them to learn them, use them, train their members to use them and save the world with them.

Come to chat with other like-minded folks and listen to the cool speaker David Geilhufe talk about his work with helping Hurricane Katrina evacuees reunite with their families online with the Katrina PeopleFinder and other grassroots online campaigns.

HEY!! Are you a member of a non-profit organization? Are you a technology geek interested in helping others? You should come to the first Houston NetSquared meeting tonight (3/14):

When: March 14th, 2006 at 7pm
Where: Rockfish Restaurant (11805 Westheimer Rd)
Who: Non-profit members/supporters and technology advocates
Why: To remix the web for social change…. and to hang out, have a drink and hear a cool speaker
