Meet the NTEN Community
The NTEN Community is full of great folks. Here are just a few of them.
Michael Hoffman is the CEO of See3 Communications, a firm that helps nonprofits and causes use the internet for advocacy, education and fundraising.

He is frequently quoted in trade journals, industry blogs and the mainstream press about the intersection of social media and causes. He is a founder of DoGooderTV and EarthFirst.com, and is a nationally sought-after speaker on topics such as cause marketing, and the revolutionary power of web video for social change.
Deborah Elizabeth Finn lives to bring resources and needs together seamlessly in the nonprofit sector, mostly through strategic use of information and communication technologies. She loves everything about her work except being an independent consultant, and would much rather be a cog in a machine. Her past and current clients, all of whom she adores, include Third Sector New England, the Public Conversations Project, Changing The Present, Social Markets, Earth Track, the Food Project, Massachusetts Law Reform Institute, IDEAS Boston, and the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network. She is a founding member of the Information Systems Forum, the Ethos Roundtable, Mission-Based Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Nonprofit Technology Working Group, and the Boston Technobabes. In her spare time, she captions photographs for LOLnptech.Org, reads Victorian literature, listens to Counter-Reformation liturgical music, and indulges her compulsion to introduce everyone on the planet to everyone else.
