  • Trends and Best Practices for Associations

    Dmitriy Buterin 15 November 2006 5 comments
    I greatly enjoyed the recent CSAE seminar on Trends and Best Practices for Associations (and many of them apply to other kinds of non-profit organizations). The world is changing and we all have to adapt - or deal with (unpleasant) consequences! The 7 measures of success study done with Jim Collins as the advisor (author of famous business bestseller Good to Great) was also quite interesting, I will probably do a separate post on that one. Here is a short recap of 8 Super Trends discussed: 1. Demassification (break-up of the mass market). (And this word sounds made-up to me. I prefer "mass customization") The mass market is breaking into smaller pieces, as differences in lifestyles, preferences, and priorities further segment the population. Members and prospective members alike are interested in focused efforts to meet the needs of their smaller, more specialized groups, not in a one- size-fits-all package of association products and services. (I am definitely seeing this trend. One very cool idea we are working on in our Wild Apricot system which will help to support this notion is a tagging concept - to let people "tag" member records and events just like they tag pictures on Flickr or bookmarks on Del.icio.us)

  • Wild Apricot in ITBusiness.ca article - now we are officially Web 2.0 :-)

    Dmitriy Buterin 17 August 2006 1 comments
    I am not too big a fan of Web 2.0 moniker - it has been overused and abused too much. It means too many different things. Still, the basic meaning of "Web 2.0" label is simply "new generation web applications" and thus I was glad to see Wild Apricot...

  • Why did we name our system Wild Apricot?

    Lori Halley 01 June 2006 0 comments
    Why did you call it Wild Apricot??? That's the question we are confronted with (along with some interesting expressions on the other person's face) whenever we mention the name of the system. Well, that's easy to answer. A friend has commented: ...it...
