Two plugs

Two quick posts - one is an e-mail I had regarding a new website, the second is news of a film showing by the AWL left group on the interesting subject of the "green bans" implemented in the 1970s by Australian workers.

Hi Greenman,

I'm emailing you to find out if you could lend us a helping hand with our new project.

We have just launched a new service on called "Green QuestionVille". It's a place where you can ask green questions and have other memebers answer them. Members also vote for the best answers. Very cool stuff... You can find Green QuestionVille here and I was hoping you could do a quick post to let people know about it.

If there is anything we could post about on for you we would gladly help. Thanks so much.
