I have enjoyed greatly writing my first book. I always find it very satisfying and educational to edit my own work. As William Faulkner said, "I don't know what I think until I read what I said". My next book will explore social entrepreneurship, a relatively new field of academic study and increasingly popular in the general press and social media. The book is tentatively titled Social Entrepreneurship-Lessons Learned from One Laptop Per Child. The beginning of the book will define social entrepreneurship and describe the four business models for such organizations (yes–I do like business models). The second part of the book will present the history of OLPC and the important concepts to be derived for how to think about a successful social entrepreneurship venture. The third part of the book will show some of the difficulties to be overcome in a large, successful social entrepreneurship venture. The last part of the book will be a case study that shows how to transform a small social venture into a world-class social entrepreneurship project.
