Aren't websites great?

I've really been enjoying rifling through for inspiration (a kind of january resolution retrofit) although a bit miffed that being a non-American it seems I cant vote to influence the presentation they are making to Obama. (Correction, I just worked out how to do it - it was a navigation problem - my vote was for Greening the US Grid)

Green thing goes from strength to strength.

And my favourite today is Winchester Action on Climate Change, incredibly simple but those real stories and personalities that emerge in the 'any other comments' plus the local feel and the crisp design... - I think they have pretty much got it just right.

(Interesting they didn't present this in order, you have to suspect that's because the legalise marijuana idea won by a very substantial margin: 19,000 votes vs 9,000-12,000 for the others. This is a campaign to represent the liberal groundswell, but also quite capable of not representing them too accurately? I'd prob have done the same, but its got to be recognised as orchestration not representaion nonetheless? Which is true of the whole Obama project and not arguing with effectiveness of that)
