GOOD… a good idea

by Eva

Work was slow today. I’m sure I could have found something productive to do but instead, I decided to daydream and let my fingers do the walking. After searching for a while through the same ol’ pile of junk, I stumbled upon something that was indeed different and that is beneficial. See, in these difficult times, it seems sometimes that there is a shortage of good ideas but on this site, it seemed that this was where brilliant opinions congregated.Sure there are plenty of ideas to be found elsewhere, like on MinneAfrica and AIM to name but a few (shameless plug). But it seemed that these ideas were more alive and stated here with a definite air of certainty.

Verily it may seem that I am mumbling incoherently, but do not forget that I am allowed this once in a while, and that in this new rebirth of society we need to engage with each other and share our vision for a better society. Hopefully from these ideas will emerge practical solutions for the difficulties we face. I was particularly inspired by the “If I were President” Videos.

This “GOOD” idea defines itself as,

“a collaboration of individuals, businesses, and nonprofits pushing the world forward. Since 2006 we’ve been making a magazine, videos, and events for people who give a damn. This website is an ongoing exploration of what GOOD is and what it can be.”

You can check this out for yourself by going to the GOOD website and seeing it for yourself.  And do share with MinneAfrica first, what you think of all this. Okay!

  1. good idea! I love this website!! Now more reading material. I just finished reading an article on handwriting. Gosh, do they still teach children “proper handwriting”?

  2. Unfortunately, Nekessa in this age of computerized communications, handwriting anything is difficult enough even for us that were taught at the end of the cane on the virtues of legible and neat handwriting.

    Most schools have a hard enough time teaching kids to speak coherently let alone taking the time to teach them how to write legibly. I have seen what passes for handwriting and it is a shame. Especially when I review work from very qualified professionals who hold high ranking jobs.
