Innovation Toolkits for Nonprofits - my review of the DYI kit, plus after diving into a number of design thinking kits - I found two others that were totally awesome.     Has your nonprofit used innovation facilitation and techniques to generate new ideas, adapt or adopt ideas that get better results?
Lately, I've been obsessed with methods for facilitating innovation for nonprofits.    It isn't a matter of facilitation techniques, but process design.     The field of innovation practitioners, whether in corporate labs or working in social good sector, comes with lots of tool ki

Here's three good posts to read about the Twitter Profile redesign:

What the Twitter Profile Design Means for You

An analysis of the good and bad. 76% of Twitter users are on mobile and the new profile is for desktop. 

Will the new Twitter profile get some of these people back to their desktop? Who knows. Also, you still get a pop-up window that gives you a summary of the profile, do you click and view the whole profile?

A template for the new image sizes:

What do you think? Have you turned on the new design?

I really like the Mobilisation Journal project posted on the Knight News Challenge.    Here's why:

There is not a resource that facilitate learning and experimentation from organizations/networks/individuals who want to use networked approaches for social change campaigns – regardless of issue.   This journal provides a way to strengthen practitioners skills and adapt to rapid changes. The journal information will be highly practical but based on research and can be immediately applied.

 The potential for a larger feedback loop – of organizations and others using the insights and reporting back what they learn is very exciting. 
The Greenpeace Mobilization Lab has a project proposal idea for a "Mobilization Journal" as part of  the Knight News Challenge.  It's open for comments and feedback right now - or "applause."   This blog shares some thoughts about this project and I have to give it a
