Shared-Access Models

While catching up on news for my blog, I read a Financial Times article that I bookmarked last week. Dated February 21, “A fair division of the spoils of charity” describes how nonprofits and businesses are approaching open-access issues in their joint ventures. Some examples involved technology, others did not. They all reflected the tension between the nonprofit desire to do the greatest good and the for-profit desire to maintain a competitive edge. A sidebar summarized three models for “dividing the spoils” – spin-off benefits, consultancy services, open-source obligation – which helped expand my thinking on how elements of open-access approaches are being applied in the nonprofit realm (see previous post on Open Philanthropy?).
