If you haven't checked out, you should. It's a true progressive website linked to the famous 'Z Mag' Magazine that has been distributed world wide for over 20 years. The site (and Mag) features the blogs of Noam Chomsky, John Pilger, and Howard Zinn to name a few, and has set up an ambitious online education project.

I think it is interesting not only because it features power house progressive thinkers, but because it is trying to organize from the ground level. Education is the key to creating a more just and equal society, and to have access to some of the most interesting thinkers in the world is very exciting. The project looks far from finished, but it is a start, and fantastic to see an alternative to the modern education system that values narrowness and specializaiton over creativity and inquisitiveness.
