A Letter From the CEO: MindTouch and Climate Lab
Being a big believer in volunteering and social activism, I’m always interested in organizations who choose the MindTouch platform as the basis for their outreach activities. One such organization is Climate Lab, a community site working to drive awareness and action on climate change related issues, by improving knowledge sharing and collaboration on the subject. They recently launched Climate Lab Networks — a program that allows the syndication of Climate Lab content across partner sites, creating a center of excellence around climate change with the contributions of network members.
The MindTouch platform makes it possible for non-programmers to connect systems, databases and web-services in the context of an easy-to-use collaborative environment. For Climate Lab, MindTouch is a powerful platform for rapidly publishing and syndicating its content – allowing them to create meaningful conversations on environmental issues. Read the official press release.
One of the ways MindTouch helps not-for-profits like Climate Lab thrive is by offering discounted MindTouch commercial licenses to all properly registered non-profit organizations. Does your group want to get more people involved and organized, working together for a particular cause? With our special non-profit pricing, we can make it possible to leverage the same collaboration platform used by NASA, Microsoft, Intel and Mozilla.
Stat of the Month: C02 Emission Statistics
This month’s chart is dedicated to shedding light on CO2 emissions in conjunction with Climate Lab. The United Nations Statistics Division has collected CO2 emissions data for every country on Earth. The above chart, (developed using MindTouch Charts) displays the per person average from 2004 figures. This chart also highlights a comparison of the entire nation’s emissions in 1990 and 2006.
