本·拉特雷(Ben Rattray)名言

I was always interested in social change but never actually did anything about it.

我一直对社会变革感兴趣,但实际上从未对此采取任何行动。

Social networking technology didn't really exist until 2004-2005. I had the idea to use this technology to bridge this gap between a general interest in addressing social issues and the practical action.

社交网络技术直到2004-2005年才真正存在,我的想法是利用这项技术来弥合人们对解决社会问题的普遍兴趣和实际行动之间的鸿沟。

Some charities treat donors like cash machines. Until now there hasn't been any effective way for them to provide a more personal or interactive giving experience.

一些慈善机构把捐赠者当作提款机。到目前为止,还没有任何有效的方法让他们提供更个人化或互动式的捐赠体验。

There are a lot of complaints by the older generation about the lack of action in this generation. My retort: give these people something to be engaged in. Cutting a check is not engaging.

老一辈人对这一代人缺乏行动的抱怨很多。我的反驳是:给这些人一些可以参与的东西。切割支票不起作用。

In college, I was always disappointed by lectures that covered social problems but failed to identify what I could do to change them. Part of the problem was that many professors simply didn't believe they had a role in converting awareness to action.

在大学里,我总是对那些涉及社会问题的讲座感到失望,但却没能找出我能做些什么来改变这些问题。问题的一部分是,许多教授根本不相信他们在将意识转化为行动方面发挥了作用。
