And a wealth of connections made — and introductions sought

JD LasicaHere’s my Flickr photo set from the Nonprofit Technology Conference held Thursday to Saturday in Washington, D.C. at the Washington Hilton — 89 photos in all. I got a chance to try out my new Canon 5D Mark II and 70-200mm lens.

It was the biggest (2,008 attendees, founder Holly Ross announced) and best NTC yet.

  1. JD: I am so jealous of your list of people you got to meet at NTEN! I so wish I could have been there this year – but it was just bad timing with another event I needed to be at. I would love to have met you and others. By the way, Tim Lim from is a really great guy. I've known him for a while. He's a master connector! I have been told several times I need to meet Charlotte Radamaekers, Heidi Massey, and Amy Bastian. I think it was a fantastic idea for you to put together this list – I wish you lots of success with all of your connections!
