What I Learned From @nancylublin About #dataonpurpose

Beth Kanter

She shared that Bob likes to talk about nonprofit data scientists as being dot organisms. Just like your brain, you have nerves everywhere that tell you to take voluntary actions like “raise your arm.” Another example was to help Youth Homeless Shelters. They interviewed them and found out that homeless teens want one thing – jeans. Kids learned about homelessness. In August 2013, they sent an opt-in text message to area codes in El Paso and Chicago.
