This project started when Sallie Owen, Communications Director for the A+ Education Foundation, e-mailed me to say:
Saturday I was a presenter for the Alabama Organizing Project, a year-long leadership training program for grassroots organizers. I mentioned wikis as a sidenote about Web 2.0 and the idea of free or very cheap websites that were easy to update, which turned out to spark a lot of questions.
Sallie went on to tell me that the group had a wide range of technological savvy and that most were from very small organizations with minimal resources. She asked if I had anything to share on how a nonprofit could put up a website using wiki software. I didn't have anything specific, but it's an idea I'd been toying with ever since I'd seen the site put together by Nonprofit Rules on Wetpaint. So I told her I'd pull something together.
