“Over the years I have tried to use images and ideas to cut through complacency and apathy while trying to raise consciousness about an array of social issues from discrimination and human rights, to health and the environment….” — Chaz Maviyane-Davies

Coming out of my own complacency and apathy about everything that isn’t the draft of my paper, catching up with my favorite blogs. Thanks to Ethan Zuckerman for pointing to a terrific site, CORRECTION: The site was started by Julia Zimmerman and Chris Thomas and INCLUDES the work of fine graphic designers such as Chaz Maviyane-Davies started by Chaz Maviyane-Davies: 30reasons.org gives us a poster a day showing why to vote for Obama! The first one, (at left) by Maviyane-Davies, is pretty depressing but today’s features a more cheerful Margaret Mead quote:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” — Margaret Mead
