Event: Ashoka Induction Ceremony

Ashoka's North American induction ceremony in Los Angeles, December 9th.  (The pdf invite includes the full list of the new Fellows.)  

One new Ashoka Fellow that caught my eye was Matt Flanneryc0-founder of Kiva, which I have argued recently should spread into microfranchising.  I find it interesting that Ashoka, which has a long track record of finding social entrepreneurs early in their development, picked up Flannery about two years after he and Kiva were discovered by the blogging community but at the same time the remaining 24 fellows are likely completely unknown in the blogosphere.  How can these two networks cross-pollinate?
