Building on and measuring success
I agree with the premise of your article that we need to "support and manage the endless process of knowledge generation, facilitation and networking involved in what is essentially a spontaneous activity of socio-technical change." I think it is excellent that you have identified this as a focus for ILEIA.
Recently our organization has been striving to monitor and evaluate the success of our projects. We are getting better at measuring our performance, but we are still working to identify ways of measuring our impact in communities and on individuals. I think that the exchange of information is very important in our organization's work and I am interested in finding ways of measuring this in practice. How are you and ILEIA going to measure your success in meeting your goals for the generation and exchange of information? I would greatly appreciate any insight."
