The role of membership at the Guardian
News organisations everywhere are seeing severe pressure on advertising income, and need to diversify their revenue streams. With no paywall, The Guardian must find other ways of driving financial contribution from readers. Launched in September 2014, membership is seen as the answer. What has the Guardian learnt, and how will the scheme need to evolve to meet its targets?
Content with purpose
Bea Karol Burks
Using examples from both Tinder Foundation and Citizens Advice, I'll talk through how taking a fresh look at digital content and a user driven approach can dramatically change the impact charities have. Great content is team game; it takes designers, writers, subject matter experts, developers, researchers and users. Involving all of these elements can help charities focus their digital content and make sure every element has a purpose.
Giving Unchained: could the blockchain transform charity?
The blockchain is best known as the distributed ledger technology underpinning Bitcoin, but it also has the potential to transform philanthropy. Not only would it enable “radical transparency”, which could fundamentally change how we donate to charities and how charities use the money they receive, but it also opens up the possibility of finding entirely new ways to address social problems. Furthermore, if the blockchain is also the key to a fully-fledged Internet of Things, it raises the possibility of a future in which AI-enabled smart objects emerge as a new hyper-rational donor class.
