Cari Tuna and Dustin Moskovitz: Young Silicon Valley billionaires pioneer new approach to philanthropy – The Washington Post.

“There are so many important things that need to be done in the world. People are approaching her all the time for help,” Cohler said. “It’s hard to stay focused and be very research-driven and thoughtful, and I admire that she has been able to do that.”

Tuna said that while she and Moskovitz’s approach may be analytical, that doesn’t mean there isn’t any emotion in their work.

To the contrary, “we’re really optimistic about the way the world is heading, about humanity’s progress,” she said.

“The world is a big, complicated system,” Tuna said, “and I feel we need to be as smart as we can be in order to stand a chance of having an impact with the resources we have — which are significant in one sense but really small in comparison to the kinds of the problems we want to work on.”
