Had lunch with Jill Perkins yesterday and worked out a bit more of the detail for GivingMarket as /GivingNewsBlog. Much of this clarity is surfacing on this page already. Just look around at all the Small Changes here.
In this most recent incarnation, the GivingMarket wouldn’t try to own the transactions as a processor, foundation or other intermediary would want to, nor the individual project data as a matching or directory service would. It seems enough to bring links and surface little bits of news.
If this plan sticks, then this blog will be opened for public posting of Giving News. It will be an invitation to notice and post where Giving asks/offers are being made, people to people, little individual to little individual. Also, news of the results would be invited.
