It has been less than two weeks since the too-early death of Excel Asama, NetSquared’s veteran organizer in Douala, Cameroon. Excel touched the lives of many and the Tech4Good, NetSquared, and TechSoup communities have come together to honor his life. We raised $878 to assist the family with funeral expenses during this difficult time. My thanks to everyone for their generous contributions.
April promises to be a busy month for NetSquared. There are already 36 events scheduled with more being posted daily and we’re about to launch the TechedUp campaign and push a recruitment drive with inactive groups.
If you’re a regular reader of this blog you’ve probably encountered one of my twice-monthly roundups of nonprofit tech meetups. But perhaps you’re leary about attending an event because you’re not quite sure what it will be like. Describing NetSquared events is difficult, because each one focuses on a different topic and has a unique flavor set by the organizing team. Instead of words let me try a few pictures that will illustrate our community.
