COF Conference & Philanthropy Blogs

Bruce Trachtenberg of The Communications Network, on the intersection between the COF conference and the philanthropy blogs:

If what you are asking for happens — that is, people take you up on your offer and engage in a dialogue with you and each other, which I’m sure they will — then the next step is to keep the conversation going long after the conference ends. Blogging and other online tools provide an opportunity for the kinds of in-depth discussions, information exchanges, etc., that back in the old days we could only have when we gathered in conferences. Now we get to meet and talk to each other in places like this, and for all the world to see.
