On White Courtesy Telephone, guest blogger Chris Cardona deconstructs "the causal connection between greater representation of diverse groups in philanthropy and more grantmaking dollars flowing (or not) to these nonprofits."

Holden Karnofsky's Christmas Day post on the GiveWell blog should be read by every nonprofit executive who believes in transparency and full disclosure.

Tom Watson, chief strategy officer at Changing Our World, Inc. and the journalist/entrepreneur behind the onPhilanthropy.com site, has launched CauseWired, a new blog about "the convergence of innovative media technology with a generation of young consumers who believe in the power of that technology -– and their own ability -- to change the world."

For New Year's, the indefatigable Beth Kanter has resolved to do something about the growing pile of e-waste in her home office and offers this helpful guide to those with a similar problem.

At Fundraising for Nonprofits, Gayle Roberts explains how you can become a top-ranked nonprofit expert on LinkedIn, the leading business networking site on the Web.
