Tim Devaney and Tom Stein suggest that "The Next Billion-Dollar #Startup Will Address a Basic Human Need": http://www.readwriteweb.com/start/2012/05/the-next-billion-dollar-startup-will-address-a-basic-human-need.php

While it is perhaps an obvious affirmation in hindsight, it's easier said than done. But it offers insight on how every #entrepeneur should set his motivations straight before embarking on his journey, an issue this great post by Kevin D. Johnson in "BizWizKevin - Advice for Entrepreneurs" adresses: http://bizwizkevin.wordpress.com/2012/05/22/205-youre-an-entrepreneur-if-you-have-the-right-motivation/

If you use Google+, chances are high you've heard of, or even circled +Guy Kawasaki . In the post linked below for Mashable.com, Emily Price talks about Guy's impressions of Google+.
If you still have doubts of how Google+ can help you expand your experience as an #entrepeneur, I highly reccomend the reading of Guy's ebook, "What The Plus?" (available in http://www.guykawasaki.com/what-the-plus/), where he explains why Google+ is the ideal social media for your passions.

Can the creation of local, micro economies help young people through difficult economic times (and, who knows, outlive them)? The team behind Producia - http://rva.producia.org - thinks so. And they might be on to something.

In their own words, "Producia is an online/offline platform that empowers college students and Generation Y to overcome the obstacles of a shortage of capital to become impactful social entrepreneurs." They will release their alpha-version in July 2012 in Richmond, Virginia, but are looking for people interested in implementing the idea elsewhere.

The model is a gamified microeconomy where the digital barter currency is called The Fini. Check out their blog to know more! http://rva.producia.org/blog/

The great www.mashable.com series "The World at Work" highlights, in their own words "the people, projects and startups that are driving innovation and making the world a better place."

Here (http://mashable.com/2012/05/07/sparked/) they write about the online volunteering portal www.sparked.com, which allows you to donate your talents to non-profit causes, instead of money - creating a lot more engagement and fun!

Forty years ago, Indira Gandhi asked what is now a rethorical question: "Must there be a conflict between technology and a truly better world?"
The article by Thane Kreiner linked below gives inspiring examples of social entrepeneurs making a change throughout the developing world.
