Welcome to Dot Org Issue #11!

In this issue we focus on using open source software, a topic that has been buzzing around the nonprofit sector for years.  We asked two of our colleagues to help us understand the strategic issues in using open source software.  We welcome Michelle Murrain & Katrin Verclas as guest writers.  Some of the content in this issue is excerpted and adapted from a recent booklet published by the Nonprofit Open Source Initiative.

In Dot Org # 12 we’ll be featuring a collection of valuable open source software tools. We will also report on the results from our recent survey of nonprofits regarding open source software. We’ll talk about what nonprofits are using now, what they feel is working well, and what they told us they’d like to see develop in the future.
