Rules: then and now

My observation on "then" and "now":

When we last wrote our rules about philanthropy and nonprofits, the most important asset was money and the places we assembled were publicly owned (schools, town halls, community centers). Today, the asset that matters is data, and the places we assemble (online) are owned by cable, cell, or social media companies.

I highly recommend reading Marvin Ammori's On Internet Freedom and Susan Crawford's Captive Audience.
