Milieutopia is Derek Rector's blog about the transformation of directories, knowledge bases, and communities - three big things that non-profits must get right to retain members. 

A milieu, as defined by the Mirriam-Webster dictionary, is the physical or social setting in which something occurs or develops.  Our product, Milieu, combines the capabilities of directories, knowledge bases, and communities to create a natural context for engagement.  The same can be achieved using other platforms if the right strategies and a few modifications are applied.  By sharing stories about solutions we've implemented for our clients, and the ideas behind Milieu, Derek hopes to provide a playbook for anyone that wishes to achieve real transformation for their constituents.
