Guest Post: Susan Herr, PhilanthroMedia
As dean of the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California, Dr. Earnest J. Wilson III is on the front line of changes wrought by the digital revolution. That’s why The Communications Network tapped his expertise three years ago for its report: “Come On In. The Water’s Fine. An Exploration of Web 2.0 Technology and Its Emerging Impact on Foundation Communications.”
I first heard Grant Oliphant admonish foundations for not being willing to talk openly — and routinely — about failure (and without shame or embarrassment) at a Communications Network conference in Miami in 2007. Back then, he laid out a 10-point prescription for overcoming reluctance, or plain unwillingness, of foundations to admit that not everything works as they planned.
