Using social network technology effectively in social change activism
This week we’re continuing on from Working Wikily, the social change resources link posted a few weeks ago. There’s an excellent new paper from the Center for Strategic Philanthropy and Civil Society (at the Sanford School of Public Policy of Duke University), describing how information technology is “Disrupting Philanthropy.“
Lucy Bernholz, Edward Skloot and Barry Varela “provide a guided tour through the marvels available today that not only did not exist a decade ago but could not have existed because the technology to make them possible had not been invented or adopted” (quoted from Noah Flower of Monitor Institute).
If your reading to-do list is overflowing, you might like to check out the Disrupting Philanthropy panel discussion, available on video on the Council of the Americas website.
