I’ve decided to take a leaf out of Chris Blattman’s excellent blog by doing a brief, regular roundup of some of the stuff I read / saw / watched / listened to during past week or so (and liked). See how Chris does it here.
This week I liked…
- NZ could spark climate action, expert says – showing that the idea of NZ taking the lead on global issues isn’t just a crazy pipe dream of nostalgic Kiwi liberals.
- My plea to the people of Israel: Liberate yourselves by liberating Palestine – Desmond Tutu’s weighs in with a reasoned and impassioned piece on the latest violence in Gaza.
- In Defense of Raising Money: a Manifesto for NonProfit CEOs – an old piece, but a classic on Sasha Dichter’s blog that I only just recently discovered.
- Kenya: Drone Journalism Takes Off to Give Kenyans a New View – stories about drones actually doing good things always warm my heart.
- In Ferguson’s Aftermath, Will Police Adopt Body Cameras? – the idea of outfitting more police with body camera’s has been gaining a lot of attention, including this petition.
I’d love to hear what thoughts you have on these articles or issues, as well as what stuff you liked this week.
