October 4 2007 – Blog like it matters . . . .

Part of the idea behind ‘Typing is not activism’ is my own rejection of a lot of web-based ‘actions’ – where ‘action’ means hitting ‘forward’ and pressing ‘enter’. But at the same time, many impactive activists are writers (who can appreciate irony) and most activism would have a limited impact if there wasn’t somebody (or a million somebodies) moved to report on it, start a discussion about it, change their thinking and ultimately their world because of it.

All of this is not quite beside but more back and to the left of ‘the point’.

Tomorrow – October 4 – is One Blogpost Day for Burma.

If you haven’t heard the latest news out of Burma, please check this out.

You can show your support for the monks and civillians under attack in Burma by displaying one of these funky grafics on your site tomorrow. There are millions of ways you can show your support – but this is one.

If you want to know more about the Free Burma campaign,

just click on the chunky graphic or go here. Thursday’s coming – spread the word.


Stumble it!

Props to Kakariki for the Saffron Stencil find.
