The other day, the OEN senior staff held a conference call to discuss future directions. We're excited about continuing our work to advocate for progressive causes and issues.

Here's a list of some new approaches and topics we'd love to see you write about, use quicklinks to share info about or see polls created to explore.


pay attention
first family
pushing nader's citizen assemblies
Bush and Cheney's last days and the damage they can do
coming out from our holes in the ground and facing the PTSD we've suffered the past eight years or 16 years.
Bush supporters who voted with Obama, people who have crossed the aisle after being republican their whole
what can Obama do to undo and what needs to be done that was not done, that can be done
More than one term? Priorities, being realistic.
No free pass, but...
building on our success- politically, consciousness raising/awakening-wise, influence, coalitions, networks activism.
We we are the first of the fight for 2012
appointees- Rahm emanuel, Kennedy
World perspective and celebration.

We'd like to know what you care about, what new topics or approaches we should cover and what we should cover more of.

what are your thoughs and ideas?

Then, we have our handful of negaholics. There are maybe a dozen members who constantly post negative, angry, generalized comments about how awful everything is, no matter who is elected. Well, OEN has over 22,000 registered members and it's time that that group of a dozen stops drowning the site with their negativity. If you're as sick and tired of them as most of the readers, let them know.

It's fine to disagree with people who write articles or diaries. It's fine to criticize Obama or anyone else, so long as it's current stuff and not the same old rant or right wing echo chamber garbage that's been sent around in millions of forwarded emails.

It's spamming to constantly post comments saying how awful everything is, without specifically discussing the topic of the article or diary. That needs to end. Spamming is a cause to lose access to posting on the site. We don't want to ban anyone. But spamming has to stop. We want comments directly related to the articles and diaries.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind. Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big) to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
