Learning Center Update

Some recent developments might interest our readers. As you might recall, we've been working on establishing a learning center here on San Francisco Bay where we would teach investigative research to community activists from across the country. We and our colleagues would serve as advisors, faculty, and mentors to these students that fly in for seminars and symposia. Presently, this is done ad hoc through distance-learning over the Internet.

We recently discovered that some of our work is being used in courses at Annenberg School for Communication (USC), Columbia University (New York), and Monterey Institute of International Studies. With that in mind, we are in the process of rebuilding the Public Good Project website. Two of our communications design and infrastructure advisors have volunteered to complete this task.

We also noticed that Political Research Associates in Boston (the largest repository of information on the anti-democratic movement in the US) has given our 2001 report on research as an organizing tool top billing. Anticipating additional recognition and connections, one of our associates from Austin flew in recently and we looked at a suitable property for the learning center, but for now that remains a dream. Still, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Anyway, thought you'd appreciate an update.

PS While Public Good's website is under reconstruction, we've made some of our most popular articles, papers and reports available on the Continuity homepage.
