Michael Kramer -Faculty - Department of Communication - College of Arts and Science - University of Missouri
"Dr. Michael Kramer's research centers on three main areas: employee transitions in organizational settings, emotion management in organizations, and group communication processes, particularly in non-profit organizations such as community theater, although he has recently begun investigating the relationship of researchers to institutional review boards. His work on employee transitions examines newcomers, transferees, recently promoted employees, employees being dismissed, and employees experiencing a merger or acquisition. He has typically focused on uncertainty reduction theory as part of this research. His book, Managing Uncertainty in Organizational Communication, presents his conceptualization of uncertainty in human interaction (2004, Lawrence Erlbaum Publishers). Michael is extremely diverse in the research methods he uses, ranging from quantitative research, to content analysis, to ethnographic work."

Climate Central
Climate Central is a nonprofit, collaborative group of scientists and communicators. Our mission is to create a bridge between the scientific community and the public, providing clear, honest, nonpartisan, and up-to-date information to help people make sound decisions about climate and energy.

Everything we do will ultimately zero in on a set of core questions. Among them: What do we know today about the state of Earth’s climate? How do we know it? What do we not yet know, and how are we going to try and find out? What might we do to prevent the most disruptive effects of climate change, and how might we adapt to those changes we can’t avoid? How does our use of energy, land and natural resources interact with the climate?

Open, Closed, or Clopen Access? | July 2009 | Communications of the ACM
The bottom line is there are two distinct issues here. The first is the issue of for-profit vs. association publishing. The current relationship between the scientific community and the for-profit publishers makes no sense to me. The second issue is the business model of association publishing, for example, "reader pays" vs. "authors pays." This is a legitimate topic of discussion, as long as we understand that it cannot be separated from the overall business model of the association. Just remember, "free" is not a sound business model.

Socialbrite fills a glaring gap in the social media world. While young people and early adopters increasingly turn to the social Web not only to socialize but to communicate, explore new ideas and share new experiences, nonprofits and social change organizations are still generally stuck in the top-down, one-way world of Web 1.0.
