Help us imagine what you do.

I use new technology tools to solve an old problem: how to get people involved. Our goal is to connect people to their community.

What kind of future do you imagine?

I imagine a world where making time to volunteer is easy and worthwhile organizations have more supporters than they need.

How do you stay imaginative?

I try to keep up with technology and with people. That means talking with those who have used our service and reading the network administrator's guide to Linux.
