My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Wiserearth, San Francisco, CA, USA
For the last 2 decades, I have been actively involved in the development and continual evolution of Internet based technologies for a number of very large corporate entities. With the onset of the new millennia, it became apparent to me that as the internet and its related systems continued to evolve, many of the actions and behaviours that we associate with the human condition had transposed themselves onto this infrastructure. It became equally clear that that the inequities between the privileged and the under privileged were in many ways accelerated by the advent of this new virtual world. And the concerns that we have always had for human rights and social justice were applicable to this evolving new world in the same ways that they applied in the old one. Finding WiserEarth has been helpful in developing a rising level of awareness and communicating those concerns to a broader and attentive audience. Far more so than the more frivolous applications of most public social networks. I applaud all those involved with the WiserEarth organization and sincerely believe it is a model that needs to be both followed and expanded as we move into the second decade of this new millennia.
