Next week’s Philly Net Tuesday (gathering at 6:00 PM at the Friends Center, 1501 Cherry Street) is shaping up beautifully. Our three presenters (Nathan Gasser, Jim Wurster and Michael Tedeschi) will be talking about how your nonprofit or social cause can utilize various CMS’s (including Drupal, Wordpress, Omeka and Google Sites), and which ones are best for which purposes.
Happily, some schedule changes mean that we WILL be streaming the event live (via http://phillynetsquared.org/live), and we’ll be watching the Twitter hashtag #phlnet2 to enable remote participation.
If you’re so inclined, you might want to check out some of these resources which may be shown or discussed on the evening itself.
Wordpress. You can see lots of examples of WordPress sites here: http://wordpress.org/showcase, and check out some sites that Jim has built or helps manage:

Omeka. Here are some links you might want to check out:
Google Sites. Here is some background information:
And, finally, you may be interested in this 82-page PDF from Idealware on comparing Open Source CMS’s: http://idealware.org/reports/2010-os-cms.
Lots of good stuff – AND the opportunity to discuss what might work best for YOU.
RSVP’s are appreciated for planning. Hope to see you there.
