Common and The Fearless Revolution

I've been following this Common thing by The Fearless Revolution. I don't really have a handle on what it is. I do know it's the brainchild of Alex Bogusky and John Bielenberg and Rob Schuham. John is also Project M and did that great work in Hale County around municipal water that I told you about here.

"Common" or "The Fearless Revolution" work out of a place called "The Cottage"and the concept is to build a network of creative types - and to actually brand that network - and I guess harness the power of this immense group of artists, filmmakers, graphic designers, web developers, art directors, writers, photographers, illustrators, researchers, producers, and advertsisng execs to work on  pro bono projects and to actually work in areas that will be a huge benefit to society and the planet. They also talk about wanting to "fast prototype a new capitalism." and they are "seeing a dramatic shift in the way business is done towards more transparency, more collaboration, more democracy, and ultimately more value."

You can sign up to join "The Fearless Force" and do pro bono work here. Although, I've signed up and haven't heard a peep from them.

Here's the Butler Bros "advermentary" about "Common"
