Back soon - deadlines looming

I am a few hours away from finishing my third major writing project of the last few months, all of which came due on June 30. Ironically, I haven't written for the blog since early May because I have been writing almost nonstop since then. I'll be back here soon with thoughts on the following: hybrid systems of change, cool new capital strategies for nonprofits, and some thoughts on what I'm tentatively calling open philanthropy.

In the meantime, check out Phil Cubeta's blog for The World We Want. Add your thoughts on The World We want. The book associated with this, coming from Peter Karoff and TPI later in 2005, is one of the three deadlines I'm pushing to meet.

Thanks, Lucy. Would you consider posting an essay on your view of The World We Want, here on your blog? If you do, let me know, and I will link to it from The World We Want Blog. The hard part of Peter's assignment is not the vision, but the "how to," the plans, strategies and tactics. Presumably for those of us who do not have or control significant resources, the plans must include enlisting and organizing the "many" as well as catering to the wealthy few. A key issue, one to which Peter himself is sensitive. How does "philantropy" and the "philanthropic capital markets," verge over into democracy and social capital? I would love to hear your thoughts on all this, from whatever angle you approach it.
