Glad I stumbled across this blog! Great resource info. Cheers.

Hi,

Very astute commentary. When I read that article originally, I couldn't think about how it sums up split between the growing for-profit philanthropy 2.0 folks versus grassroots empowerment types like myself. One of my favorite quotes from the text was:

"Omidyar told me that in the two years or so since he became involved in microfinance he had not visited a microfinance institution or met a borrower. Just the opposite of Yunus’s entry into microfinance: Yunus left theory behind to listen to the poor, and Omidyar seems to rely largely on theory. Omidyar sees himself as an agent of global change—in this case, the commercialization of the microfinance sector."

Heck, even Bill and Melinda travel to Africa every now and then.

I'm all for business types starting to finally actiing more like nonprofits -- I mean what’s good for the gander is good for the goose -- but I just wish people would stop calling it philanthropy, cause to me, its giving without the gift.

Peace,
Gayle

Excellent, pithy, to-the-point commentary - even for me, having read the whole article.

It seems the non-profit vs. for-profit choice will continue to spark heated debate for many social enterprises - and the people who seek to support them.

As a fan of the fledgling new jobs matching community, LaborFair and other for-profit social enterprises such as Enterprising Kitchen, Longfellow Clubs, FreePldge and Juma Ventures I support the notion that entrepreneurs are living the example they hope to inculcate among those they serve... I look forward to reading more from you
Kudos!

NBA fans can count Andre Iguodala(notes) among the insiders who think there will be no season due to the lockout. Iguodala told csnphilly.com that he agrees with NBAPA chief Billy Hunters assessment that the NBA season would be lost. Personally, I think Iguodala is right. However, it is a little surprising to hear a player speak about the lockout in such a way.
