From ProgressiveSourceAwards.com:

The Progressive Source Awards recognize innovation and compelling messages in online advocacy. Our objective is to provide progressive advocacy groups and non-profits with an easily-accessed repository of Web marketing “best practices.”

The Awards are the first to recognize effective Web advocacy campaigns. Anybody can recommend a nominee for a Progressive Source Award at the Awards Web site. There are two prizes for each of seven categories. The general public can vote for the “Most Popular” Award, while a diverse panel of more than a dozen distinguished judges will also select a Judges’ Award for each category.

Learn more, nominate and vote at ProgressiveSourceAwards.com! Oh yeah, I’ll be one of the judges.

Avaaz G8+5 Climate March – Rostock, Germany

Video slide show of Avaaz.org’s G8+5 Climate March in Rostock, Germany.


The background music is an instrumental piece by Hepnova. The inspiration for the piece came from my travels in the Nordic countries. In the piece, I attempt to evoke the awesome powers of nature, as well as the fragile balance of the polar regions.
