Hi Maria,
Unfortunately I couldn't go to Barcelona because of the visa issues :( At least i made it to Prague for the NGO Accessibility Workshop with our trainers - great event!! though translating non-stop for several hours was quite challenging :) It was wonderful to see old friends and meet new ones. Catching up on things now, as always :)
Hugs from the finally warm Moscow!

Thanks Maria... I am also planing to post note about "The Fetishization of Scaling Up" on the forum that is dedicated Social enterprise. I don't think that someone will join discussion but atleast it will be archived in quite visible place...

I solved the problem with getting the RSS of outside blogs into your page (I just had to activate this feature). Now, when go to your page, in the left colum you will find a box "RSS" with an edit button, where you can specify a title for the feed, the feed's URL, choose whether to display detailed posts or titles only and decide on how many items you want to show.

As soon as you activated your feed here, I will take your feed out off the RSS feed of the middle column, otherwise it will appear twice (once as a main RSS feed, once as part of your blog posts).

I couldn't find out yet how to syndicate RSS feeds on your own blogpage, but I will soon!

For the moment, I took up the feed of your blog to feed the central column. Your articles are great!
