How do you keep yourself or your organization thinking about and using technology creatively?
We are always trying new things. Some things work and some do not but I think many organizations have veered away from trying new things and sometimes you just have to think outside the box — be willing to try something out knowing that it might not have the outcome that you are hoping for.
3 things you want people to know about you:

3 things you want people to know about your organization:
