Blog Action Day 2008: Poverty

By: Chris Greacen - 08/21/2008
October 15th, 2008: Blog Action Day, a great idea. Here's the deal: motivate a bunch of bloggists to write about a social issue (this year, poverty). Then, here's the kicker -- donate the earnings from that day's ad revenues.

The Greacen Zone falls on one extreme (ly small) end of the audience size spectrum. But since all of netscrap.com is involved in this ad-revenue experiment, I'll donate all of the netscrap platform's revenue. Might even beat the minimum for a microloan on Kiva

What will I write about? At this point: no idear. Really. I've lived in cities. I've taken enough human geography, heard stories from peace corps veterans, and travelled enough to know at least a little about the average state of humanity in the world. But poverty -- specifically. Dunno.

I'll come up with something good.
