The world we live in is constantly changing–and the technology systems we rely on turn-over even faster. In order to stay up to date on best practices, new developments, and emerging theories, we are always reading. We share these articles internally and figured we should be sharing with you as well. Here’s what we’ve been reading this week.
Tony Kopetchny says: There are lots of organizations talking about how to address mis-information and this article shows a few examples of how (the three groups listed) are working to make it happen.

I also appreciated the who’s-who list of big foundation players – seeing the big guns tackle this is great – it says they’re interested in more impactful grant-making and are investing in that!
