The US-based N-TEN organisation has started a blog of articles on how nonprofits use technology, and the help they need from Circuit Riders (mobile tech support staff) and others. This has promoted discussion on the UK Circuit Riders list about how tech people and organisational development people need to work together in the field. The Circuit Rider movement in the UK is being led by London-based LASA. Circuit Riders seems to be the only substantial support show in town for nonprofits (and that mainly London so far), apart from the work of DirectSupport - currently mainly working with UK online centres. Tech planning without organisational development can lead to a tumble into the technology trap .... but the issue is often ignored. For a longer discussion, see Joni Podolsky's article at N-TEN, and even better her book referenced there. A major problem in the UK is getting funders to think beyond 'give em the kit', and valiant efforts by Joe Saxton and others to get support from Home Office and others over the past year failed. Time for another try?
