Contributing towards a better society....What can I do...???

"You are talking about a better society? What do you mean by this? Why you always try to live in utopia? On ground reality is different...we are facing food crisis, water crisis, electricity crisis, and many other and you are telling me that I...I can do something about this?"

Welcome to TechChange

(Cross-posted from techchange.org)

It's clear that technology is beginning to play a key role in social change. Look at the role crisis mapping software has played in coordinating earthquake response in Haiti, or the effect that social media such as Twitter have had on demanding government accountability in Iran.

Hoyer Can't Handle Questions

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer spoke Tuesday morning in a large private room (the Columbus Room) at Union Station in Washington, D.C. and took questions. He had no answers for the questions I put to him.

Hoyer's topic was fiscal responsibility, and he said that his proposals -- which were all pure vagueness -- would be appropriate to enact "as soon as the economy is fully recovered." Don't hold your


Hoyer, as is the custom, bragged about cutting and trying to…

An Easy Way to Dramatically Change Congress

There are lots of ways to change Congress that falsely appear easy, that would alter the rules and patterns of behavior if only Congress were already fixed and willing to make the changes, or if we owned the

television networks, or if people could suddenly hear what they're paid

good money never to hear. But I've got a way to change Congress that is

actually easy.

Congress lacks leadership. There is a progressive caucus, but it has never fought for anything. It doesn't…

46: For me, it is worth it

I was walking in Jara Market In Amman, Jordan. I was with a friend and

we were enjoying walking around the outdoor market and looking at the

wide range of products for sale: coins, antiques, t-shirts that say

"Jesus is a Palestinian," paintings, books, etc. And then my eye

caught a glimpse of a table of olive oil soap. Having become a huge

fan of olive oil soap since moving to Beirut, I thought I would stop by

and see what she had for sale. And boy was I surprised!… Continue

It's WAY past time to start heeding Dr. Schweitzer's astute, half-century old observation!

For those who may be "historically challenged", the late, great Dr. Albert Schweitzer was not only a man of science and medicine, but also a renown "thinker", Theologian and Philosopher of his day (early to mid-20th Century).

He was also very concerned with archaic & even absolute lack of basic health services of the times; particularly for those most at risk/in need. So he established what was to become the first "bush" clinic in Central Africa; a primitive clinic that grew into…
