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

Technology, democracy, civil society

“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 ...

Institutional philanthropy goes digital (slowly)

Ethics, data, mission and revenue
I just finished a three part series on digital values and civil society . We'll have to call this post part 3.5. As I did so, I was (slightly) relieved to see that the Chronicle of Philanthropy raised an ethical eyebrow at the growing practice of nonprofits...

Blueprint 2016
Yes. It is time for me to start thinking about Blueprint 2016.  To get it to you live in December I start thinking, mulling, complaining about, and drafting by June. I just made my annual notebook to start compiling my papers, thoughts, and ephemera that I ...
I just made my annual notebook to start compiling my papers, thoughts, and ephemera that I don't store online. I start carrying this with me everywhere. I spend a few minutes each day going back through all my online storage spots where I've been bookmarking and filing things since January 1, ...

Digital sabbatical
It's intermission. I am going offline (email, twitter, blog, etc.) till mid - May. Please be in touch again after May 15.

19 minutes on digital civil society

I've been thinking a lot about values, society, and technological design. I'm trying to articulate what, when, and how the values that shape civil society should be expressed with and within technology. What I do know is that it's not just at the point of use. We need tools that default to the ...
