Welcome to a special Friday the 13th edition of Mixed Links. No black cats or broken mirrors here though. We’re bringing the good stuff today including some lucky folks who won All-Access Passes and individual webinar registrations! Let’s get started…


For those of who who couldn’t make it to the 2012 Nonprofit Technology Conference  by NTEN in San Francisco this year, you can live vicariously through these folks who did. There is tons of great information available if you search for posts with #12NTC, but here are some of our favorites:

Katya Andresen summarizes Dan Roam’s session on visual problem solving.

Big Duck’s Farra Trompeter shares What We Learned at NTEN’s 2012 Nonprofit Technology Conference. Be sure to watch the tribute video for the award Farra one, by the way. It’s priceless.

Rally blog posted Rally Notes from NTC which compiles all of their NTC posts in one place. Nancy Schwartz did the same with her #12NTC tag.


Although KONY 2012 Part 2 isn’t garnering the same numbers as its predecessor, there are still some important lessons to be learned from this campaign.

The Humane Society of the United States released this infographic on the seal hunts in Canada which concisely counters the arguments of seal hunting supporters.  I love how this piece doesn’t just share stats like many infographics, but really advocates for change. Could your organization do something similar?

How did everyone do with the switch to the new Facebook Timeline? Kira Marchenese would like to know what you do with old Facebook pages for campaigns that have stopped, programs that didn’t work out, etc.


The American Red Cross and Girl Scouts are immediately recognized because, despite being locally operated, they are branded nationally. Many other nonprofits are in similar situations but have resisted accepting a national brand. The post Adopting National Branding (for Nonprofits) explains why that may be a bad idea.

Thanks to everyone who completed our survey on which webinar topics you wanted to see on the schedule this summer and fall. The top five topics are the same we shared earlier in the week — but now I’ve added the dates when they will be offered:

We randomly selected seven survey participants to receive webinar passes (Kristina will email winners with details).

Congratulations to the two winners of a quarterly All-Access Pass that will let them join us for unlimited webinars:
Collen Hamilton, Iowa Wildlife Center
We are also giving away five passes to individual webinars. You usually need an All-Access Pass to attend, but these webinar passes will let each person attend a webinar of their choice on our current schedule:
Jennifer Hottell, United Way of Monroe County
Barb Cooke, Volunteer Maryland
Cally Ingebritson, Tri Valley Opportunity Council
Abigail Clarkson, CarePartners Foundation
Sue Schnitzer, Parenting Place
Have a great weekend!
