  • Sweet Seeds for Haiti promotion in its FarmVille social game had raised over $487,500 for the Haitian and Since it is known that 50% of all proceeds from the Sweet Seeds for Haiti sweet potato seed virtual item go to charity, that means Zynga generated nearly $1 million in revenue through sales of that single virtual good alone. 

  • £49 billion = sector
    50% from individuals
    ROI for community fundraising = £2.79 : £1
  • Kiva started in 2005
    Payback rate of 97.88%

  • Fly theory

  • Management = 20th Century invention… like TV, doesn’t mean it’s gonna work for ever
    Traditional management = Great for compliance
    Engagement (what charities want!) => Self direction
    Few times a year > Tell engineers work on anything you want, as long as not regular job
  • “Have to deliver over night”
    Autonomy over time, tasks and techniques
    At Google +/- half of all new products / services during that 20% time > Gmail, Google Ads, Orkut, Google News
  • Result Only Work Environment
    12 companies in the stats (used by American consulting) and productivity, employees engagement goes up

  • AIESEC size: 40,000 active members, 110 countries, >99% of volunteers and rotation of leadership = 1 year
    AIESEC Ahmadabad Consulting: refused paid jobs to volunteer for personal growth

  • Microsoft, mid 90s… lots resources: expert, money, management, structure, marketing, etc
    New model: fun, no professionals, no money
    No sober economist would have predicted what happened…
  • 14 million articles
    350 million edits
    May 2009… stopped Encarta.
    Encyclopedia Britanica… THE reference… 184x less hits than Wiki, and now try to copy their strategy

  • Pennsylvania: volunteer for clinton and did paper work (process), then Obama and asked about passion… personal interest: Star Trek > talk about Obama at conventions and forums
