What will the technologically empowered nonprofit look like 5-10 years from now?

I am conducting an open source experiment in conjunction with the Nonprofit Technology Enterprise Network (www.nten.org) Conference in Seattle next week. I am writing a piece for publication on "Visioning the future of nonprofits" - about what a technologically empowered nonprofit will look like 5 to 10 years down the road. I am actively soliciting ideas from anyone and everyone in the nonprofit, technology, and community technology worlds. People can get instructions/information and post their contributions at this blog:

http://nonprofitsofthefuture.blogspot.com/ or can email me with their thoughts directly at pauljlamb@gmail.com. Anyone whose contributions get selected for inclusion in the article will be credited, and any money from the sale of the publication will be donated to nten.org.
