Social Enterprise Corps?

This page in:

There's some interesting blogosphere chatter on Jonathan Greenblatt's proposal for a Peace Corps for social entrepreneurs. I like the idea, with one major caveat. When I got to the part about the US government screening people's ideas, a quick premonition of bureaucratic sclerosis dulled my enthusiasm. The social entrepreneurs I've met all seem to have an allergic reaction to paperwork. My vote: take the government out of the business plan, and instead leverage the great work being done by Ashoka, StartingBloc, Eonfire and others.

In the meantime, a great alternative to the Peace Corps is the GeekCorps.
