Anonymous Iran


Project Chanology, the movement to help expose the Church of Scientology, has partnered with the democracy activists in Iran to provide a voice to Iranians seeking freedom in their country.

I think we'll be seeing more and more of this, where one online community helps another online community, simply because they share a common goal or ideal. There is power in numbers.

why prop up the system that just failed us?


I like this guy. It makes no sense to me to be propping up the very companies and people who caused the failure in the first place. Plus, trickle down has shown to be a bogus theory anyway.

it's past time for health care overhaul


60% of bankruptcies in the US are caused by medical bills.
47 million Americans don't have health care coverage.
The US is the only major country on earth without universal health care.

We can be so backward in some things...

crowdsourcing; the new way to get things done


My research on Project Chanology showed me that it's not as hard as you think to have thousands of people suddenly decide that a social project is worth their time and effort, even if there's no monetary gain for them. Crowdsourcing is an alternative to forming or hiring a business to accomplish some task. I love it.
