This is the first in an occasional series of updates about things going on in the world of social enterprise (and related fields) that I think readers might be interested in. To avoid any confusion, none of the mentions below are paid-for ads but the activities I’m personally involved in will (like this blog itself) mostly be work I’ve been doing as part of my day job at Social Spider CIC. The regularity of the series will depend on its popularity.
