TechSoup Technology Help Desk Office Hours

TechSoup's Nonprofit Commons in Second Life have been great at bringing people together to network, share, and learn about technology and how it can enhance their nonprofit work.

TechSoup has answered the community's technology questions via telephone, email, and on TechSoup's forums. This has also begun to occur on TechSoup's social media sites such as their Linked In and Facebook group.


Many thanks to Brownrice Internet for hosting the NPSL site.
