We have a new web site called
www.edflix.org. Our first priority
is to create videos that teach other people how to make videos, and we have
now placed a number of downloadable movies on the site that do this.
The first program, called Hypercam, records your voice as well as whatever
is displayed on your computer screen. This allows you to easily make
movies about using computers and software. The second program featured
is Windows Movie Maker, which is an easy-to use movie editing tool.
Making movies is fun.
Download our teaching films and see for yourself.

We have taken on a new project - the production of educational
DVDs. One of the conclusions of our studies is that the vast majority
of people learn much faster from sights and sounds than they do from the
printed word. Furthermore, educational institutions, with their
rigidity, expense, and enormous drain on time and energy serve as a
bottleneck in individual and social progress. If we can develop a
rapid, painless, and cheap method of learning, then this would serve as an
alternative, in conjunction with discussion groups and other social
networks. We have done just that, explained more fully in our
January 15, 2002
We have a new site up:
The site summarizes the best educational reform books available. The
data we have compiled that delineate the root causes of social dysfunction
is now awesome. We believe that the quickest and most effective way to
publicize our conclusions is through a fictional screenplay based on real
facts. We are currently interviewing consultants and screen
writers. There are two new pages of which we are especially proud, on
different subjects but clearly interrelated:

Health-care-reform.net is now number one in ranking for the keyword "health
care reform" in Yahoo, Google, and LookSmart. The site is indexed in
the major directories as are the rest of our sites. This was
accomplished without any manipulation or trickery of any kind and is based
on number of hits and links to the site. This is a major achievement
and leads us to believe that the public is taking our proposals seriously,
and that eventually they will be adapted. We have greatly expanded our
staff who are busy doing research to augment our sites further. We
have additional openings.

We have added a new web site on

The Campaign Finance
site has been rewritten incorporating many suggestions from readers and
members. Seven FAQ pages have been added to various sites. Our
writing staff is growing and we have an internship program at over 1000
college campuses nationwide for web site contributions and mindful activist

Greatly expanded and rewrote sections on
Education Reform and
One of the problems with a site this large and varied is that it is
difficult to index in the search directories. It was decided to create
a number of smaller sites, each covering a separate topic. These are
discussed in more detail in the directory of this site.

I did a number of searches using various key words. The most
interesting one was simply the word: "Reform." In the Google
search engine there were almost five million entries under that key word.
The first thing that came up was the (political) reform party. I read
their sites very carefully, and then wrote a

There has been a pickup in activity in
the discussion forum.
People are asking a lot of good questions, all of which are being responded
to. The questions have prompted the addition of four new pages in our
health-care reform section beginning with
May 18, 2001
We have linked to the
discussion forum services of
Delphi.com. Their software and community oriented program will add
more versatility and features.

We have added a
discussion web to make our site more interactive. It is intended
that this site reflect a pooling of ideas from many sources.
