This inaugural post highlights the big nonprofit technology stories of 2012, including making websites viewable on mobile phones, using mobile phones more in the workplace, cloud computing, social media fundraising, foundations and Microsoft donations, greater self-sufficiency among NGOs in developing countries, and some cutting edge things like hackathons. This was an original December blog post by TechSoup Global's Jim Lynch:

Millions of people throughout Asia use at least one of these services. There are probably at least a million more who might like to. We hope you'll find something that will surprise and delight you.
