Bloggers for Positive Global Change

As indicated below, I am now a recipient of this award, courtesy of the fine folks at Carnival of Climate Change. As part of the rules of the award, it is now my responsibility to nominate five blogs I feel have taken the weight of the world upon their shoulders and are trying to build awareness among their readership in order to create a more sustainable and enlightened future.

So my five nominees are:
  • QandO: up to date, contemporary politics and good discussion pages: excellent writing
  • Samizdata: a blog for people with critical, rational and individualist perspective aka libertarianism -- they do it best
  • Tech Central: dynamist perspective on all aspects of public policy, always well written and well substantiated
  • Spiked: UK counterpart to QandO, contemporary, controversial and with a great stable of regular contributors
  • Ponder the Maunder: the blog from the school kid that started as an extra credit assignment: Kristen Bynes shows that one person with an idea and the courage to share her views can indeed have a profound influence.
Positive global change: a construct that is timeless and a founding principle of enlightenment. As Stephen Covey has written: Renewal is the principle -- and the process -- that empowers us to move on an upward spiral of growth and change, of continuous improvement.
