Anyway, I just got done posting a blog entry over in "Eschatos In-World ..." about some stuff I did there today (read the blog post HERE), but I wanted to pass along a bit of that to y'all on the L.J. side:
One of the things that I did over there was going to the opening of Kiva.org's new space in the Non-Profit Commons. This is a very cool "microfinance" organization that lets folks make loans of as little as $25 to folks trying to start or expand small businesses in the third world. The whole concept is pretty cool, and it's an amazing use for the awesome reach of the Internet. Do go over and check them out!
