  45. 53. The rise of online “microphilanthropy” “ Any small-scale activity or gesture that carries with it some intent to do good, has the effect of transforming communities for the better, and is facilitated by technology” Peter Deitz Founder of Social Actions “ This is more than just breaking down philanthropy into small pieces and moving it online. It involves an infrastructure that is fundamentally different and changes the way in which philanthropy takes place. One that far better reflects the new non-linear relationships that we now have with each other, with lots of points of entry, lots of feedback, and opportunities to change your role along the way” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4e_eHf9tCA
