For the past couple months I’ve been jotting down random ideas on how to make this world a better place. But they don’t do any good sitting in a Word document on my Mac. I could blog them on my own blog here, but frankly I don’t think they’ll get much attention that way. One of my goals is to influence the thinking and budget allocation of an organization that has the money to make a difference, like the Google Foundation (Attention: Larry Brilliant!) or the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. A pretty lofty goal, I know. Another of my goals is to find individual champions to see some of the ideas through. So I decided to create a separate blog as a repository for these ideas and ensuing discussion. I’m pleased to announce that I have just (soft) launched that blog, at ChangesForGood.org. Check it out. And give it a link if you feel so inclined. 🙂 Currently it’s just me blogging there at the moment, but that will (I hope) quickly change. I want it to be a group blog, because I don’t have the corner on the market of ideas! 😉 I’ve already got a few bloggers who offered to participate, but I need many more! Any of you bloggers who are reading this keen to occasionally contribute to such a blog? Non-bloggers who want to become bloggers are invited too!
funny coincidence you should come out with your new blog today, just a few hours after I blogged on what I believe is a ground breaking event, an influential comedian blogger (believe it or not) meet with the Italian prime minister to represent ideas, expectations and proposal coming from his blog. I believe it is a first ever and yet another demonstration that blogging is modifying our lives. It could be a way we can make this world a healthier, peaceful place to live.
