Dreamforce, again

*sigh*

Will I ever commit myself to implementing this fantastic product for The Crucible? It is so incredibly inspiring to see what nonprofits big and small are doing to improve their effectiveness by using great tools offered up for free or nearly free by large corporations that just seem to GET IT.

I feel that I should dedicate myself to ONE WEEK of intensive study and create a plan for improving The Crucible’s data management and quit waiting for someone over there to step up to the plate. I was at a presentation today where one woman, a graphic artist, has completely moved her tiny operation to Salesforce, supplemented by three other API apps and is now doing the work of entire teams of people because of the leveraged power of these tools.

Show, don’t tell.
