Meet the NTEN Community
The NTEN Community is full of great folks. Here are just a few of them.

Before I joined MDS, I worked as a reporter, copy editor and online
producer for Wisconsin's largest daily newspaper, the Milwaukee Journal
Sentinel. That is where I was introduced to the Internet in 1999 - WAY
before I had even heard of HTML, and got my "formal" training as a Web
My hobbies include trail hiking, travel abroad, journaling, blogging (two very distinct things!), Vespas, and shopping the local farmers markets.

Sheldon Mains helps nonprofit organizations improve service to their communities. This may be planning new technology, evaluating current technology, integrating technology into the day-to-day operations of the organization or getting the organization to think in totally new ways.

He believes that technology change should be combined with business practice and organizational changes to have the most positive impact.
