People power transforms the web in next online revolution | Technology | The Observer In July 2004, US cinema advertisements for Halo 2, the science fiction computer game, briefly carried the address for a website - ilovebees.com - which appeared to belong to a beekeeper who had mysteriously disappeared. Her honey-based recipes had been replaced by an apparently random list of numbers. Over four months 600,000 people joined in solving the mystery of what the numbers meant. What unfolded was a striking display of 'We Think': structured, mass collaborative creativity and intelligence. People set up blogs and bulletin boards, websites and instant message groups. One 4,000-strong group, the Beekeepers, became the community's core, and discovered that the numbers were 210 sets of global positioning co-ordinates around the world and at each there was a public payphone.

Some Real Issues for 2012
Cartoon: Cathy Wilcox. THE death on January 4 from self-immolation of Tunisian street vendor Mohamed Bouazizi triggered a tumultuous year of revolution in North Africa and the Middle East. The 26-year-old Bouazizi's suicide, a protest against corruption and despotism, was a tragic start to a year that will be remembered for a resurfacing of people power.

What are the prospects for sustaining high-quality groundwater? Dec. 19, 2011 — Intensive agriculture practices developed during the past century have helped improve food security for many people but have also added to nitrate pollution in surface and groundwaters.
Agro-ecological farming methods, not industrial-scale agriculture will be needed to ensure food security and protect food supplies from the impacts of climate change, argues Olivier De Schutter, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food. He challenges the widely held view that food production needs to be scaled up to feed a growing population, saying that such a strategy overlooks climate change as well as how food is produced, by whom and for whom. Agro-ecology attracted interest during negotiations at the COP 17 climate change conference in Durban, South Africa, says De Schutter, and provides an opportunity to tie together the food security and climate change agendas. The seriousness of food crises "is needed to re-inject urgency into climate talks", and an awareness of climate change can keep food security discourse on the right track. Climate change is already affecting the global food supply, creating food shortages and famine. Agro-ecology methods are key to food security
