Resources from the Worldchanging Library

And as we scrolled back through the archives, we realized that, within these pieces, we've highlighted a number of excellent books, magazines and websites. Over the past few weeks, we have combed...

New York Times on Social Translation

I’ve gotten several...

Weekend Roundup: Tweenbots, Livable Streets and Climigrations

TweenBots Kacie Kinzer has developed a unique and irresistible crowd-sourcing experiment that caught my eye this week, and seems particularly apropos in the wake of Jer's article on persuasive design. Kinzer's low-tech tweenbots (pictured at right) wobble haplessly through the streets of Manhattan, inspiring "a complex network powered by human intelligence and asynchronous interactions" – in other words, New Yorkers are going out of their way to help guide the smiley little machines out of...

Using Philanthropy to Fuel Innovation

This article was written by Alex Steffen in June 2007. We're republishing it here as part of our month-long editorial retrospective. Last week, I had some great conversations, sitting in the sun on a hillside deck on Vancouver Island, talking about how we might better fund the changing of the world. I was there to speak to the annual meeting of the Canadian Environmental Grantmakers' Network. They'd asked me to come share some thoughts about how we might better use philanthropy to fuel...
