"some people, some of the time, are going to do amazing and generous work... If we'll just give them access to tools and get out of their way."
This post is so great. I think Seth articulates the foundation of Ben's Friends better than I ever could. We start a network and teach people how to build them - the "tools" in Seth's comment. And then we get out of the way and watch them do "amazing and generous work." It's really that easy.
