No matter how computer savvy you are you'll leave this session with a few
new tricks up your sleeve. This training is only offered once a year - so
don't put off the chance to add more incredibly useful tools to your
toolbox. Have a favorite productivity tech tool? Email me and we'll check
it out. We're always looking for new tips!
*Join Socializing for Justice for a ProfDev (professional development)
training on Productivity Tech Tips Monday, July 7, 6:00-8:30 PM.*
The tech world can be an overwhelming place. You know that there are 1001
great (and free) tools you can be using to live a more productive life, but
you don't know where to start. Let us help you out! At this ProfDev we will
go in depth to demonstrate many great tools you should be using everyday,
including Rapportive (social media Gmail integration), Google docs and
forms, Jing (video captures), Dropbox, a recently discovered "zero inbox"
tool, and much more.

ABOUT OUR PRESENTERS
*Jess Samuels* (@JessMSamuels <http://www.twitter.com/jessmsamuels>) has
been talking tech for over 20 years. Her very first computer (not counting
her Atari) was a hand-me-down black and white Macintosh Classic. However,
it was her Macintosh Performa that really made her fall in love with all of
the possibilities that computers and the budding internet could bring into
our lives. Since then she has developed an intense curiosity for new
technology and how to make it useful in our day to day lives. Jess also has
a strong interest in design, and tries to find ways to wed her love for
graphics and tech (especially in designing infographics).
*Robbie Samuels* (@RobbieSamuels <http://www.twitter.com/robbiesamuels>) is
often asked how he manages to do so much and still sleep. These tips are
the answer. His non-stop schedule includes running 1-2 events a month for
Socializing for Justice, 23 events a year for Gay & Lesbian Advocates &
Defenders and 1-4 trainings a month "on the side". No wonder Boston City
Council named his birthday "Robbie Samuels Day" in 2011! His very first
computer was a Commodore 64 when he was in 3rd grade and he was hooked.
Some thought he'd "go into computers", but instead he uses technology to
enhance his life, increase his productivity and engage with his community.
Learn more about his trainings, including: "Art of the Schmooze" and
"Fundraising: Getting Past the Fear of Asking" at www.robbiesamuels.com.

Since 2006, we've been building this great sandbox where we can bring
progressives of all stripes together and try out new ideas in this
"Movement Moment". Spaces like this are crucial as we start to reframe and
build new visions for our movement(s).
SoJust hosts events that draw progressives of all stripes that share common
values but may work on different issues. We host monthly socials that allow
for the possibility of cross-issue connections and run a monthly ProfDev
Series, hosted by The NonProfit Center*, which provides access to
affordable professional development to increase our individual capacity for
With 2500 members and almost 8 years of creating a diverse cross-issue
community in Boston (180 events!), Socializing for Justice is the best
place to find the great people, organizations and community you're looking
for while putting the SOCIAL back in social justice.
*YES, WE MEAN YOU.* We've got members of all ages, races, genders, sexual
