Community Acceleration

The question of when to tackle formal strategic planning is a tricky one for any community. Strategic plans can be powerful instruments for communities that are ready for them, but at some stages of community development, a labor-intensive planning process may sap energy needed elsewhere or stymie playful innovation.

Community Cultivation, Revisited

I actually tried to stand in the way of Educopia’s founding! I’m the first to admit it. A dozen years ago, I was the naysayer.

Funding Panel: Innovative Funding Models

Science relies on funding. The models that have controlled scientific research funding for the last half century have brought us where we are today.
