In the wake of Meetup.com changing their sponsorship agreements, Technocation, Inc., an international not-for-profit group, has set up a fund for user group sponsorships. You can use the button below to donate any amount of money in US funds via PayPal:

It actually just ended up being ?here?s how Informant works, and here?s how auditing, security and compliance needs can be met,? presented in a way that?s useful and valuable to anyone who is interested in auditing or security.  More »
