"We have science fiction, and science follows it. We imagine it, and it comes true. Yet we don't have social fiction, so nothing changes." When Muhammad Yunus made this statement at the recent Skoll World Forum, there was a sense that this was a quotation we'd see repeated for years.

This week, I spent a fascinating couple of days at the Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship in Oxford. I wish everyone could have been there: It was exhilarating -- and deeply moving -- to hear example after example of social entrepreneurs making quantifiable improvements in lives all around the world. As Stephan Chambers, chairman of the Skoll Centre, put it: "I have cried every day this week. Remember as I tell you this, that I'm male. And British. And from Oxford." I actually cried every hour. But, remember, I'm female. And Greek. And from Cambridge. I also cried when Roy Sekoff, our founding editor, texted me that his father, Arthur, had passed away. Besides being a huge supporter of HuffPost (which he rightly felt contained some of his funny, feisty, passionate DNA), he was an eagle-eyed evaluator of my hair whenever I appeared on TV -- good or bad, he let me know about it. He was a real character, in the best sense -- a warm, witty, and exceedingly generous man. Read more about him here. He will be missed.
