Here are this week’s newly added blogs….enjoy!
Carolyn Jack is principal of Cleveland-based consulting firm The Genius Group and former arts editor for the Cleveland Plain Dealer. There are some really interesting creative-economy-related doings taking place in the Cleveland area right now, and Ms. Jack is right in the middle of it. Her blog on Geniocity.com focuses on creativity in the broadest sense, making the connection between the arts and other fields such as science and entrepreneurship. Very interesting stuff.
The Clyde Fitch Report
The Clyde Fitch Report is the brainchild of a theater journalist named Leonard Jacobs who used to write for Backstage magazine and now contributes to FOX News. His blog covers “the nexus of arts and politics,” leading to a fair amount of content on arts advocacy and policy. Leonard is an extremely prolific (I swear he must write tens of thousands of words a week for the blog) and passionate writer. We got into a bit of a scrum over NEA advocacy (what else?) a while back, but I’m always glad to read his opinions even if I don’t always agree with them.
Produced by the same people behind Future Leaders in Philanthropy (FLiP), onPhilanthropy is a more general series of essays on, well, philanthropy, mostly written by guests. There are also occasional plugs for useful-looking books from the Changing Our World bookstore.
I discovered this blog by young Stanford grad, Blueprint R&D employee, and Paul Brest collaborator Tony Wang a few months ago when he commented on one of my posts (thanks Tony!). Tony created a really cool tool called Philanthropy Search that was recently written up at the Chronicle of Philanthropy. He also had some interesting thoughts on nonprofit compensation a while back.
