Here is an interesting development: the Hewlett Foundation is reducing funding to Effective Philanthropy organizations (informing donors about the effectiveness of the organizations they support).  
“If we had any impact, it was not a discernable or measurable impact in achieving the goal.” and “Personal philanthropy may sometimes be so profoundly emotional as to be invulnerable to rational analysis.”

Thanks for your comments and ideas.
Jeff/Kevin- if you'd like to write up your noodling on the effectiveness issue, I'd be happy to have it be a guest post here. 
Nice to "meet" you Rob- it is a 3d party payor, but without a lot of incentives or responsiveness to signaling. 
Sara- it is a journey, isn't it? Except hard to figure out what the odometer is measuring (other than time).

I recently read Salman Khan's book "One World Classroom". In addition to some provocative ideas on education, this podcast (and the related HBR article) give some great perspective on Khan Academy as a startup. In particular, the podcast has some interesting comments on why it is a non-profit.

I have been using Brave New Wheel for several years as my local bike shop. Good mechanics, nice vibe, helpful advice and lots of old parts for older bikes. Two thumbs up.
