In loving, living memory, John Melançon 1928 – 2007
Justice, liberty, and the self-organization we need for both drive me to get involved in lots of stuff. Some groups I support are the Fund for Authentic Journalism, Carlitos Café y Galeria in Spanish Harlem New York, Gringoyo Productions, and COA News.
As co-founder of Agaric Design Collective, I develop and maintain web sites for companies, organizations, and individuals, using (and creating) open source free software-- mostly Drupal and some CiviCRM.
People who want a better world need to find and work with each other for us to move toward one. We have to connect and build the things and relationships that all people need. Together, we can. For part of my part, I'm helping to create an open, transparent, not-for-profit network called, and for, People Who Give a Damn.
At Agaric Design Collective I help make web sites for people who do things. We use open source free software to give groups, businesses, and individuals control over their online presence and communication. To give people power over their own lives in all respects – to further the causes of justice and liberty – I'm helping form a nonprofit organization of, by, and for People Who Give a Damn.
