'Filters of good information.' Hm. That's why we've called 'f!lter' for a year till realizing that Filter of Myspace is a bigger 'brand'. Now we call ourselves Newfocus. 'friends sharing the stories they would send each other anyway trying to make sense of the world, erm. information overload? no wisdom of crowds, please. nah, let the freaks filter for you.'

And Happy Earth Day to you, Will! Not to lose heart over the lack of attention it gets, though. Kids are coming up through the ranks - and lots of them know about Earth Day.
