Hi everybody. Hope you had a great summer, mine was fantastic. As a result of being on hiatus for so long, I have a backlog of topics that I’ll be running through in the next few weeks. Some may not be quite as of the moment as you have come to expect from such an august publication. Remember when Deval Patrick joined Bain Capital to work on impact investments? Or when Google held that conference on Effective Altruism? Or when the Rikers SIB didn’t pay out? Do you remember thinking, “I wonder what the world’s only blog offering profanity-laden advice about impact investing to the subset of foundations and high net worth individuals who are not put off by the aforementioned profanity thinks about this news of the day?” Well, better late than never.
I’ll definitely be covering pay-for-success, effective altruism, RCTs and DCTs in the next few weeks. Email me if you have other ideas. Now, let’s get to work.
Patrick Maloney lives in Portland, OR where he helps nice people working on cool stuff. He tries to limit his blogging to things about which he knows something.
