I like this: Beth Kanter "with Nick Booth and Steve Bridger... discussed the idea of Free Agents in the UK. Nick said they existed but they used a different phrase, 'Militant Optimists' – a term that was inspired by the book Handmade by Tessy Britton and coined by Dave Barrie. Nick describes them as 'People doing good things because it made sense to it. They get on with it regardless of what the system says.' Interesting, challenging but remarkable people Steve Bridger also pointed another type of Free Agent, working from the inside of NGOs called a positive disruptor." Good links, good content.
