In this video James Faghmous of Muslim Buddy, Inc. shows us how to find grants with Google Docs along with a simple script from the Google code library to “scrape” the web for information relating to grants.
This same method can be used to gather information on any topic, and is an example of one new technology strategy you might use for your organization.
Keypoints from James’ video:
* You can use Google Docs to scrape information from services like Twitter
* A similar method can bring in information from websites as well
* Using these methods can save you staff time, and help your recognize opportunities you might not otherwise hear about
