- Ron recommends: Pidgin Universal Chat Client as a way to connect to multiple instant messaging client, which allows you to talk with your friends or co-workers online, no matter what chat service they use (such as AOL Instant Messenger, MSN, ICQ, etc.). It's an incredibly handy way to communicate with your team in a way that is faster than email and great for sending links around.
- Matt recommends: Mediapost.com -- an online publishing company that caters to the media, and has “a whole constellation of blogs and e-newsletters that you can subscribe to.” They have a lot of great advice from industry leaders, and drill down into specific areas of marketing that Matt really digs.
- Maris recommends: Mashable.com -- a website with lots of daily content devoted to news and understanding of social media. Ron agrees!
- Andrew recommends: An IRS site called StayExempt.org, which allows you keep track of all of the rules and recommendations for maintaining your nonprofit status, is a fun and easy way. Andrew also recommends the Association of Arts Administration Educators at artsadministration.org, which is a site that allows you to research different arts administration degrees around the country.
