Daniel Ben-Horin wiki "describes his early efforts with CompuMentor as a kind of social experiment to create hybrid vigor between two communities that typically did not interact. In one sense it was very concrete: these mentors possessed a skill that matched a real need of social organizations. However, he knew from the beginning that there was something deeper at work. He asked himself how he could expose one segment of society to social movements they may not be aware of, and at the same time expose the movements to a type of expertise that could truly be valuable, and then do it on a sustainable level and at a massive scale... Daniel’s fundamental interest has always been in what works – in what will produce social change – and this made him willing to test new ideas and take CompuMentor and now TechSoup Global in new directions... Daniel has been named on four occasions (2004 to 2007) by the Nonprofit Times to its annual list of the 50 most influential leaders in the U.S. nonprofit sector and just last week received the Lifetime Achievement award of the Nonprofit Technology Enterprise Network, which he helped found in 2000, and which has grown into a dynamic trade association of public interest technologists, which draws 1,400 people to its annual conference."
