More Than Bit Players: How Information Technology Will Change the Way Nonprofits Work and Thrive

More Than Bit Players: How Information Technology Will Change the Way Nonprofits Work and Thrive

Do the efficiencies of networked markets benefit all participants? Are new information technologies creating winner-take-all conditions in the nonprofit sector? Will networked economies align or divide the interests of nonprofit donors and clients? These are some of the questions raised in More Than Bit Players: How Information Technology Will Change the Way Nonprofits Work and Thrive (52 pages, PDF), a report to the Surdna Foundation by communications policy expert Andrew Blau. Blau, a former program director at the Markle and Benton foundations, knows his stuff and has a way with analogy ("e-philanthropy will do to nonprofits what Wal-Mart has done to local retail"). Required reading for all leaders in the sector faced with navigating the digital shoals that lie ahead.
