Change in the Air

Change This describes itself as a new form of media that uses existing tools (like PDFs, blogs and the web) to challenge the way ideas are created and spread. Since 2004, authors of their short manifestos include Guy Kawasaki, Seth Godin, Tom Peters and Malcolm Gladwell.

Endeavor Knowledge Center provides a series of articles on high impact local/global entrepreneurship in the context of emerging markets and poverty.

On June 14, Guy Kawasaki will moderate a panel at the Silicon Valley Churchill Club entitled No Plan, No Capital, No Model ... No Problem: Companies that Defied what VCs Tell You. Panelists include the founders of FanPop [fan], PlentyofFish [dating], HotorNot [ranking], MayasMom [parenting], and CoreFino [accounting services].

Finally,the original social entrepreneur, Bill Drayton, founder of Ashoka, speaks on PBS; and Bill Gates speaks to Harvard graduates (from c|net news).
