Robert Horn is a political scientist with a special interest in public policy, organizational strategy, and knowledge management. These days, he deals mostly with social messes.

Along with changes in governance and ownership, it can contribute to a global phase transition.Vertalen

I just downloaded the GREENHOUSE app for Chrome and it is great. Talk about easy access to highly illuminating data. Well done! I’d encourage everyone to take a look at the app. It is very light and couldn’t be easier to use. As the creator Nick Rubin says, – Some are Red. Some are Blue. All are GREEN. That’ couldn’t be more true.
