Enough whining, time for action!

I often rag about the situation but don't always get off my arse to do something.
But sometimes I do.
I have made a commitment to the Obama campaign by donating my data skills to the cause. Campaigns run on data and I'm a data geek (I think in 3NF...) so it's a perfect match.
I am an Obama Data Fellow.
It will take all the time I can offer and it's a volunteer position so I get no compensation.
Except for securing a sustainable future for us all.
How about you? 
Do you have an hour or two over the next few weeks to help get us back on track? There are lots of simple ways you can help, just go to the Obama site and look around. Perhaps you won't find as perfect a match as I have but wouldn't it feel good to have participated in changing our world for the better?
