I am looking for a few good examples of offline events that grow social networks, helping them build trust, recruit new users, etc. Do you have a good example you can share? Here's one I found. And I know that other brands and social networks have tried this. Thanks!
I'm looking for a story (roughly 5 minutes) that I heard on the NPR One app a few days ago: It was about how perceived power imbalances between people at the same managerial level in an office will lead to people participating in group problem-solving to different degrees, and how to "fix" it. My googling is just turning up stories about power companies & how awful meetings are. Help? [more inside]

I need new business cards! In addition to my day job, I also am affiliated with several organizations and I am one of those hyper connected social media jerks who twitter, facebook, flickr and all that crap. I have my own domain name which is my full name .com My question is, how can I make one business card that can fill in for ALL of my organizations AND connect people to my social media profiles, perhaps integrating with info on a website, yet still be professional looking enough to hand out at conferences and the like without being self conscious?

What are some good books and magazines related to social enterprise, social entrepreneurship, and the Fourth Sector? [more inside]
I tend to work, or think about business, a lot. I'm involved in two separate successful businesses that I started. And I have ideas for more. Even all my hobbies are 'productive' activities where you're learning something new or creating something, rather than pure recreational activities like watching TV, hanging out, or reading fiction. Consequently, I haven't put enough value on my social life and meeting new people. I sometimes see that aspect of life as unproductive and not as valuable as other things I could be doing. It's not a great way to be and it's something I'd like to change. I'm looking for suggestions on how others have overcome this.
