Join our team

The Foundation technology team received a compliment the other day when a co-worker said, “Wow, your technology team is atypical.” I’ve been on great teams before in my career, and our team right now is up there as one of the best. I’m looking for a Developer to join us in our work driving the vision of the Foundation and helping thousands of nonprofits do the same for their visions. We are small, motivated, we do great work, and we value each other.

If you want to make a difference working with the best tools and the best customers, on a great team, this may be the job for you.

JP Rangaswami on social objects

I’ve been really enjoying JP Ranagaswami’s latest series on social objects in the enterprise. His series so far is here, here, and here.

I’m finding his tale of the merging of internal systems of record with external systems of engagement, and the socialization and consumerization of these objects to be really compelling. The corporation is changing, and his take resonates with me. It’s worth a read.

The Divine Right of Capital

A number of years ago I read The Divine Right of Capital by Marjorie Kelly and it blew my mind. It’s a book that has changed the way I look at the world of business, and reinforced the concept that in systems there are rarely unintended consequences–the rules are there to bring about outcomes desired by the people making the rules. I find I recommend this book almost as often as Master and Margarita and Crying of Lot 49 but for very different reasons. If you read The Divine Right of Capital, you won’t see the economy and our financial system the same ever again.

Gideon Rosenblatt is currently breaking it down chapter-by-chapter. I recommend reading his digests and then getting your hands on this fascinating book.
