That sounds like a good idea - it is a self-maintaining current list of interests and recommendations. That is why you are an innovator.
Comment by: Pelf C. Nyok (Nov-17-2007)   Web site

I used to bookmark sites that touch on the environment but that list grew kinda long, and I didn't have enough time to read and follow each site, so I trashed the list.

Currently, with StumbleUpon, I find myself bookmarking single posts (environment-related), which I find interesting. So hopefully I'll compile a list of such stories/blog posts in the near future so that we can all share what we've "discovered" and "liked" :)

About contributor Member: PT (David Alexander) PT (David Alexander)
   Web site:

Member: PT (David Alexander) In 2006 I started building the Web site to raise awareness of environmental issues, but I have been in the software field since 1978, working primarily on healthcare-related and not-for-profit organizations, but also for some general commercial companies. I have also long been a supporter of environmental causes.

I am an enthusiastic Tai Chi Chuan practitioner and teacher. This helps balance my brain after sitting at a screen for hours at a time, and lends some balance to life.

In early 2006 global warming and other environmental and energy challenges, as well as escalating wars in numerous locations, became central to my understanding of issues that our whole planet faces, and I wanted to do something with my skills to spread awareness and understanding of environment and energy issues, as well as discuss better philosophies of living, for greater satisfaction beyond consumerism.
