This just in from the folks at Skoll:

Hi Scott,

I saw that in your blog you were showcasing the video of Muhammad Yunus on Colbert. Coincidently, on Social Edge right now we are exploring microfinance and I thought you might be interested in taking a look.

We have just launched a whole video interview series on microfinance, starting with a new video interview with Muhammad Yunus telling how he started the Grameen Bank. [http://socialedge.org/blogs/global-x] and followed by a series of interviews with UNITUS members.

Additionally, the founder of Kiva blogs on Social Edge and we are holding a discussion on Microfinance Revisited as well as several case studies on microfinance. I invite you to come and join in the conversation at www.socialedge.org.

For all the microfinance resources on Social Edge including the above and blogs and podcasts, you can also visit our microfinance portal: http://socialedge.org/features/microfinance

If you think your readers would be interested, please share this with them as well.
