And, sometimes I don't talk and that works even better. The Skoll Foundation invited me to the 50th anniversary lunch for the Community Foundation of Silicon Valley, where Jeff Skoll, Bill Gates, Greg Avis (CFSV chair and prominent Valley VC) and Peter Hero (CEO of CFSV) spoke. Jeff talked about his foundation's support for social entrepreneurs and pointed out me, Martin Fisher of ApproTEC and Eric Weaver of Lenders for Community Development. A very nice gesture!
There's a lot of positive energy around talking about these issues. People love to hear about how technology makes lives better.
