I am quite intrigued how folks are using “new media” to implement change in their communities as well as globally. My favorite example is “The Story Of Stuff”, www.storyofstuff.com.
Since December 2007, more than 7 million viewers have watched this fast paced, funny, yet simple animation, including 3.5 million in the last year alone. Twenty minutes long, it is the best explanation I have ever seen of how our material economy works. I encourage you to check it out and show it to all your friends and family.
