Also at web 2.0 pierre omidyar announced that he intends to invest 400 million in new ventures that empower people. He made great points that ebay, a for profit venture had impacted far more people than a non-profit might have. He also posited that companies can focus on profits and doing good, a very google concept that the audience (including me) loved.
I would love to pitch pierre on my eparty idea which is basically to create an ebay for politics. The idea is to build a web based platform that can enable grass roots movements to rapidly organize and mobilize resources, but also to create enduring power bases beyond a single issue as moveon has partially done.
