Charleston, S.C., April 30, 2009 — Blackbaud, Inc. (Nasdaq: BLKB) today announced that it has acquired RLC CCT, a privately-owned company located in Almere, the Netherlands.

Web 2.0 isn’t a thing — it’s a state of mind. So says Andrew Mosawi, vice president of international business development for Blackbaud. During the session “Web 2.0 — A Buzzword Demystified” at The Blackbaud Interactive Internet Symposium on May 22 in New York, Mosawi defined Web 2.0 as the “business revolution in the computer industry caused by the move to the Internet as a platform, and an attempt to understand the rules for success on that new platform.” “It’s the tools nonprofits are using to fundraise and reach constituents,” he said, focusing his attention on blogs, fundraising widgets and social-networking sites like Twitter.
