I should write something for each of these, but I'm low energy right now (if I get any more depressed I'm going to be in deep trouble)

*   openDemocracy and Democratic Underground

*   News for a Synergic Earth, in association with Community of Minds and Future Positive

*   These seems to be by a group of friends: "Working Together"; Sustainable CommUnity | WinWin Wolrd | Creating Learning Communities | mindfully.org

Bottom line: it's breath-taking to discover how very little people care ... staggering, even.*
