An Excellent "New" Blog - World Changing

The Internet, and Google, really are a beautiful thing. Just a second ago, while googling for a link to Lester Brown's book, Plan B (posted below), I found this awesome "new" blog. I put new in quotation marks because they've been around for awhile, from the looks of their archives, but there's so many blogs exploding around the globe that it's hard to keep up with even one-half of one percent of the ones that share political and social commentary (which themselves are probably one-half of one percent of new blogs).

Once found, however, never hesitate to include. To integrate. So, with that in mind, I highly encourage everyone to link in to World Changing. It's a group blog, with contributors from around the globe, Trinidad and Tobago to Toronto, Stockholm to Seattle, and places inbetween, and my first impression of the content has been progressive "thinking out of the box". Here's a sample of "why they're here": works from a simple premise: that the tools, models and ideas for building a better future lie all around us. That plenty of people are working on tools for change, but the fields in which they work remain unconnected. That the motive, means and opportunity for profound positive change are already present. That another world is not just possible, it's here. We only need to put the pieces together.

I won't argue with that. That's why I'm here.
