“First we have to figure out how to make technology work for our values. Right now, most of the digital technology that we use was created to serve commercial purposes and/or the privileges of governments.”

Lucy Bernholz, director of the Digital Civil Society Lab at Stanford University’s Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society believes that one of the things the future of philanthropy and the future of civil society needs is a holistic recalibration of the technologies we use, the organisational structures we depend on and the legal rules that shape the whole space.
