Brilliant!!

Moved on! Check TheCairoCalls

Liz, here are some guys who really deserve to be knighted. Those lads are building sites that help charity and demonstrate to people how the internet can transform and improve their lives. Some of the projects undertaken by mySociety.org include a site to help you get in contact with your representative just by providing a PO address, a pledge bank, and a site where people who boycotted the UK's last general elections were given the chance to say why. A complete list of their projects can be found here.
For all Egyptian bloggers out there: THIS IS internet activism.

Moved on!

(whats up with this whole thumbnail experimentation thing? are you checking if Pam would actualy look good in niqab, because if she does, this will be bad news for the Depatment of Homeland Security; they'll have to deal with all the terrorists popping up in LA to propose!!)

Hello,

Tom here - director of mySociety. Thanks so much for the kind words! Pledgebank.com is our first site designed to be really international, and we've just added loads of features so that the site really works in countries other than the UK.

We've made it really easy for volunteers to translate the whole site into new languages - you just need to follow the simple instructions on this page www.pledgebank.com/translate . Do you think you could find some person or persons willing to do a translation for your country?

Thanks for your comment. I'll certainly start working right away on finding some people to help out on the Pledge Bank thing.
Thanks again
