Based on our early submissions, nonprofit leaders are passionate and energized about mobile changing the world. They don’t have to sell us on it, we know mobile technology, while the delivery mechanism, is really about reaching and engaging PEOPLE as Seth Godin so eloquently said just this morning.

Here’s to an amazing journey of discovery, educating and learning on how mobile strategy, marketing and technology can be, in the words of Untether.TV, the world’s greatest equalizer.
