Social Entrepreneurs

The NPR program Talk of the Nation just did a show on social entrepreneurship. They didn't mention Simputers, but they were certainly talking about what we are doing. Richard Stallman called in with a mention of Free Software and a point about things that can be fixed without fixating on market solutions.

You can listen on the Web.

Social Entrepreneurs

An engineer took on Brazil's urban sprawl by giving rural farmers cheap electricity. In India, a teacher tailored schools to satisfy young people set on emigration. Ideas, passion, a head for business and a desire for change describe these people, known as "social entrepreneurs." Neal Conan and guests discuss the philosophy behind social entrepreneurship.
