Moral of the story: stop being so reactionary or cobras will flood the streets.
Rash fixes often backfire, producing a longer route to success rather than a shortcut.

We need to bridge the digital divide. 

"People don’t put out ‘for rent’ signs anymore, so the #Internet is the best way... You can’t even go get a paper application for a lot of things. You can’t get a job unless you get online."
Some companies in the Bay Area turn to technology to aid people who sleep on the streets, for whom a phone can be a lifeline.

This could be revolutionary for #nonprofit  orgs in need of some secondary, ultra-portable computing power on the cheap.

In 2014, nearly 19% of the $16.2 billion crowdfunded throughout the year went to social causes.

We were going to build a new tunnel starting five years ago, but New Jersey Gov. #ChrisChristie abruptly cancelled it.

“We did lose a whole decade,” said Peter Rogoff, a bigwig at the federal Department of Transportation. “We didn’t have a decade to give. We cannot spend another decade thinking and talking about it.”

But that is exactly what we have started to do.

It has been a rewarding and busy quarter for me. Already this year I've had quite a number of intense, immersive meetings with our nonprofit clients.Growth has been the central theme of every meeting. There's optimism in the air again, and as the recession finally wears off, groups are looking out of the bunker window-slit to try to decide what to do next.Our engagements usually include a review of current growth forecasts (along with, eventually...

WAY too many organizations fall down this well. Heed this advice:

“Why would you go start your own payments capabilities, your own payment analytics, your own map capabilities when they’re so easily accessible from these other companies and are arguably better?”
