Beneblog: Technology Meets Society
JUNE 25, 2007
food aid played a big role in the destruction of Somalia couple of decades ago (helping lead to the continuing problems of today).

Most social entrepreneurs I know operate somewhere in between, and for good reasons. Charity is an important and good thing, but charity can be a powerful negative force when misapplied.
