ChangeThis

So, I was surfing the web today, and I came across ChangeThis, an organization "on a mission to spread important ideas and change minds." They accomplish this by publishing "manifestos," which are essentially short articles (on the order of maybe 1000 words) on various topics. What's interesting is that they insist on clear, coherent argument... a change, they say, from the mainstream media, from television and radio. They may contact you to write a piece, or there is a submission process as well. In any case, the few manifestos that I've read so far were decently written and, even though I don't agree with them completely, at least made sense.

So, take a chance, check them out. A warning and a suggestion: all the manifestos are in PDF. But, for once, the PDFs are decently laid out for screen. And, take a look at Dated for Freshness, a decent concept piece on requiring all laws to expire in time.
