About Us

We use research to make positive change in the world. We have been doing applied research for the past decade on topics as diverse as community radio stations, sustainable food systems, perceptions of the future in China, and the reasons why about 1/3 of Americans don’t have broadband at home. We look at the details (conversations, homes, relationships, stores, interactions, best practices, online dialogues, the price of gas, the news) to create frameworks that help people understand the big picture.
