(per discussion on another thread) There are all sorts of great advocacy ideas & projects sprouting up on this forum and I think we don't have to just wait for the CAA, we can move forward effectively on our own as well. Web 2.0 (social media etc) makes it well within our reach. Seems like a good time to do some coordinating. These are the projects I'm aware of off the top of my head: * XMRV Global Action (Frickly and parvofighter) * Levi's draft Joint Resolution * Kim's educational program for pre-med students * Katie's Phoenix Rising YouTube video * the Brochure thread * Others I've forgotten? Anyone? One other I would add. If someone who really understands the science is willing to take on drafting a general statement on bad v good replication studies, that would be great. (The sort of statement people have been requesting from the CAA) Just something very brief from my pov, or perhaps a very brief summary + something more comprehensive? * (Almost forgot!) My CFS OUT site, with images & slogans from the Re-Brand thread and "Superheroes of CFS" awards for the people on our Roll of Honour. I'm putting this together now, should be up in a week or two. I'm hoping it can serve as a conceptual umbrella/platform/aggregator for a bunch of these cool grassroots advocacy projects.
