If we keep on doing the same things the same things will keep on happening.
If all we do is defend the things we've done before we will become defensive.
If we criticise everything that is new we will become outdated and eventually irrelevant.
We need to have an eye on where the supporters, activists and campaigners of tomorrow are.
They are all over social media.
(and we'd be really really stupid to ignore where their kids and grandkids are - they're in the same place)
This set of slides is very good brain food for all progressive fundraisers, campaigners and activists.
Ignore them at your leisure and keep on doing the same old things.
Because that's working just fine right?

Meet the latest member of the Open Mobile team. Responsibilities are cuteness and testing. It’s the thumbs.
And lastly. A plug. My Niece just might be the future of fundraising. 6 months old and conducting her first fundraising campaign. It would be fab if you could spare a few pounds and help her towards her target.
