Here’s a great example of how social computing can serve Ireland. Social Entrepreneurs Ireland supports and publicizes unique and worthy initiatives that make social change happen.

In a perfect world, I’d challenge you each to come up with your own idea on how to harness social computing and social media and enter it in their contest to get some funding. Any takers?
