In regards to your actual conundrum, I find it sad that we often have to rely on the generosity of donations to fund such ‘innovations’.
This is such an interesting post Brad. Being in a more of a system role, it can feel demoralising at times to say no or to limit the flexibility of a given solution for the sake of equitable scale-ability. I see the system as an often invisible foundation (hopefully) allowing for innovation to prosper. I think that we have issues when we push innovation that works against the system.
