Strengthen the Good
A while ago, I stumbed across Strengthen the Good, 'Using the power of weblogs for open-source charity. Don't just fight', which I posted about here a while ago.
Today, the New York Times has an article about it.
I was interested to find that it was set up by Alan Nelson of Command Post.
I haven't read Command Post very closely, however, from a quick scan. I suspect we may have different political outlooks. I believe that Command Post was credentialed by the Republicans, just as I was credentialed by the Democrats.
Update: I just got an email from Jon Lebkowsky pointing to Rebecca MacKinnon's post about 'Blogger Corps'. Joi Ito likes this idea, as does David Weinberger. I'm a big fan of this as well. It fits well with Strengthen the Good, some of the stuff being discussed on Omidyar.net and to a certain extent with the Investigative Blogging idea that I've been kicking around here and a bunch of other places.
