Open Market Philanthropy

MIT assistant professor, Ed Boyden, discusses the concept of open market philanthropy -- connecting dollars to ideas. Boyden suggests having a website that serves as a forum for announcing research projects. Individuals browse projects and donate as they see fit. The concept is similar to micro-lender, Kiva, but channels funds to researchers.

Full-text blog posting by Boyden available via Technology Review (published by MIT), 9.24.07.
