What a first day! I know many of you were here yesterday attending the early sessions on drupal etc, but for many of us, this Thursday was our first day here in Washington DC for the National Technology Conference.
For a newbie, such as myself, I really enjoyed seeing the camaraderie and friendship between corporations, organizations and providers. Everyone knows each other!!
While I haven’t personally spent a lot of time in the science fair, I have enjoyed tweeting with everyone during the sessions. There have been a lot of great things to share! Some of the sessions have been so packed that people are crowding the doorways just to hear what the speakers are sharing, so I’m happy so many people are sharing what they are learning. Attendees have tweeted so much that #14NTC was trending yesterday:

Did you know that Saturday is International Women’s Day? Sadly, I didn’t know until my coworker Cynthia informed me, but this day has been around for over 100 years!
Some additional fun facts about International Women’s Day:
Observed around the world each year on March 8th.
Began in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland on March 19, 1911.
Over 1 Million men and women attended the first International Women’s Day event in 1911.
Serves as an opportunity to show appreciation for women and highlight women’s achievements.
The Theme for 2014 is “Equality for women is progress for all.” and was selected by the United Nations.
For more fun facts, see the full timeline from 1911 through today at International Women’s Day’s website.
There are many ways you can get involved and celebrate International Women’s Day both online and by attending events in your area. If you can’t find an event close to you, you can still participate online using the #womensday and #IWD2014 hashtags which have produced over 26,000 tweets in the last week:
I’m not the only one getting excited about NTEN.org’s upcoming #14NTC Nonprofit Technology Conference and tweeting about it! In fact there have been over 1,800 tweets in the last 90 days about #14NTC.
I love social media and analytics and in preparation of #14NTC I went through all of the speakers and put together a list of their Twitter handles, as well as the companies they were representing at #14NTC. Out of the 229 speakers (29 of whom are speaking more than once) there are 156 on Twitter. Color me impressed! That leaves only 73 of the speakers who aren’t on Twitter (or easy to find on Twitter).
To help you follow all of the speakers, and see what they tweet about, I put together this handy Twitter list of all 156 speakers:Read More
