Happy Thanksgiving!
Alex Steffen, 22 Nov 07

Here in the U.S., it's Thanksgiving, and I just wanted to pop online and say that while I have a great many things to be thankful for -- a great family, a fabulous girlfriend, many wonderful friends, good health, a home I love -- one of the things I woke up this morning feeling most thankful for is you, the Worldchanging community.

You guys consistently amaze me. We've been running this site for more than four years now, always on a shoestring budget, always pushing this abstract idea that intelligent discussion about innovation and solutions matters in shaping the future, and day after day, in the pieces written, in the comments made, in the emails we get, at conferences and after speeches, you guys have brought brilliance and warmth to the conversation. The result is a community where ideas matter and (most of the time) are shared with enthusiasm and respect.

Thank you so much for being part of the big team here. May your day (whether celebrated with turkey and cranberries or not) be full of the people and things that make you grateful.

Aah! Holidays! Time to stop, relax and reflect.

In that spirit I offer a simple thought (and a good long read) from British actor Stephen Fry on global warming:

“Doing nothing risks everything and gains comparatively little, doing something risks comparatively little and gains the whole world.”

I think a lot of us feel thanks about WorldChanging's existence.

Energy!

Thats what I get here. I get energy to keep advancing my practice and knowing that even if we're decades away from being green we can all get there if we keep going.

I have a quote too

"Optimism with some experience behind it is much more energizing than plain old experience with a certain degree of cynicism."
