Today Duke’s Center for Strategic Philanthropy and Civil Society published a monograph titled Disrupting Philanthropy: Technology and the Future of the Social Sector, by Lucy Bernholz with Edward Skloot and Barry Varela: PDF here. I have read and reread an earlier version. An excellent map of the evolving internet enabled philanthropic sector. What we had once thought of as fun, messing about online after hours, or on borrowed time at work, hoping our boss would not catch us, turns out to be the most productive work many of us have done. The study makes all this internet fermet respectable, say it has arrived, while acknowledging that the technology, connectivity, informality, rapidity, and transparency of online ways may still seem disruptive to some. Hats off to the authors!
