William Schambra on how "technology dematerializes, digitizes, and transforms every realm it penetrates" -- including philanthropy.
"[I]t is the time to talk about how the death-defying ambition of our tech titans will affect your work. For what they have in mind isn’t just providing you tools to do your work better—using a software program to keep track of your donors, say, or sending a text message to your chair reminding her that the board meeting began fifteen minutes ago. Rather, they intend fundamentally to reshape the social sector in their own image, based on their supreme faith in advanced technology." -- William Schambra, the Nonprofit Quarterly
