Store your Passwords on your Keychain<:LINEBREAK:>This new device, about twice the size of a US Quarter, will generate hard-to-decrypt passwords and maintain a list of your current passwords. Seems like I run into many people who have all their virtual accounts on one password - could be an easy solution, just don't loose your keychain. Soon to be released at about $40 each.<:LINEBREAK:>
Organizers Collaborative Releases NPO Listserv Portal<:LINEBREAK:>The project is called http://democracygroups.org and it is a directory of email lists organized by issue, by constituency, and by location. This directory allows 50 or more people to serve as editors of the content, in a fashion similar to http://dmoz.org. And they used all open source software to do it - I would keep an eye on this resource. Also check out their article - Tips on Facilitating a Social Change Email List<:LINEBREAK:>

Open to practitioners, research, scholars, anyone who is interested in technology research topics for the sector. <:LINEBREAK:>
