new localism: Changes to Localism Approved Content - 08/20/08 06:52 AM
"The best-laid plans of mice and men go oft awry"
- Scottish Poet Robert Burns

When we recently unveiled our new & improved private BETA version of Localism, we implemented an editorial review/approval process to ensure that whatever content was approved and published to the respective Localism pages met some basic criteria. These measures were employed primarily in response to the input of our membership. Back when we first launched our initial version of Localism, a substantial majority of you expressed concerns that this new & exciting consumer-oriented portal, if allowed to go unchecked, could become populated with a lot … (109 comments)

new localism: "Missing in Action!" Not Chuck Norris, but Localism Posts - 08/18/08 07:49 PM

new localism: "And Now for something Completely Different!" - 06/30/08 08:04 PM
If you're hoping for a YouTube clip of Monty Python, keep looking. This is about something completely different!
To say that I'm excited about the pending launch of the New Localism would be a gross understatement. I am beside myself. I haven't felt this energized and pumped up about something in a very long time.
When I first joined ActiveRain, Localism was still in its infancy.
