The data value index
It seems that the average joe is beginning to understand that his digital data has value. What nerds have long known (if you're not the customer, you're the product) about our interactions with "free" digital services is becoming common knowledge. Many of u...

Where is the democracy in all this democratizing technology?
There's always a lot of talk about new technologies and democracy. But is expanded access alone enough to be democratizing?  Doesn't democracy also require that that access have some connection to systems of power? That those with access have visibility int...

Volunteering is wonderful, but many of us need to spend all our time working for $ to live, unfortunately.

Technology, democracy, civil society
Loved this quote from Nathan Schneider in an article on the "slow technology" movement: "There is a habit in tech culture of saying that the latest app is
“democratizing” whatever it happens to do. This is lovely, but best not
to confuse it with actual de...
"There is a habit in tech culture of saying that the latest app is “democratizing” whatever it happens to do. This is lovely, but best not to confuse it with actual democracy. Democracy is about participation with control, freedom with accountability, privacy with transparency.

How to use private data for public benefit
( gambar: ucar.edu ) I've been away, writing. 28 days, 167 draft pages. Probably 50-60 more to go. And just yesterday, working on something else, I think I've figured out what I'm trying to say. We need a theory of data for the public good if civil society ...

I often write about emergent forms of philanthropy, enabled or accelerated by digital technology. And I spend a lot of time looking for ways that established philanthropic institutions are or could be using these tools. Here are two recent examples: HIPGive...

I think philanthropy needs to spend more time on digital policy issues. Regular readers of this blog have heard that from me for years. But digital policy is still - despite my years of trying - not on the agenda of philanthropy policy actors. Tax law is their number one issue.

Digital sabbatical
It's intermission. I am going offline (email, twitter, blog, etc.) till mid - May. Please be in touch again after May 15.
This is a blog about the future. The year 2173 seems sufficiently far enough in the future to give us some perspective.

19 minutes on digital civil society
This was a fun interview to do, with Dave Erasmus of Givey (UK mobile giving platform). Nineteen minutes (in British and American English) on what we're trying to understand at the Stanford PACS Digital Civil Society Lab .
