I really like the Mobilisation Journal project posted on the Knight News Challenge.    Here's why:

There is not a resource that facilitate learning and experimentation from organizations/networks/individuals who want to use networked approaches for social change campaigns – regardless of issue.   This journal provides a way to strengthen practitioners skills and adapt to rapid changes. The journal information will be highly practical but based on research and can be immediately applied.

 The potential for a larger feedback loop – of organizations and others using the insights and reporting back what they learn is very exciting.
