Home People Dave Karpf in The Economist

Our congratulations to Strategy Group member Dave Karpf, who is quoted in an article in this weeks’ Economist magazine on the international digital activism organization Avaaz.

Avaaz’s other demands range from the simple—close Guantánamo, because it plays into the hands of Osama bin Laden—to the very broad: fight climate change, avoid a clash of civilisations. Despite the risk of blurred signals, the variety of causes is also a strength, says Dave Karpf, an American analyst of the net; it allows the group to act as a hub, attracting members to one campaign and telling them about others.
