Long haul resistance

After the election we had a few posts to talk about how we are fighting back and organizing and trying to keep the world together. Now that we're half a year in, I'm sure folks have settled down to some sustainable activities to resist and or at least care for their neighbors in this new world order. I'm probably not the only one who could use some bolstering from hearing what other people are doing now that this is a long-haul struggle. So, are you still calling your congressperson? Have you been attending demonstrations? Did you join an organizing group or donate to a nonprofit? Are you getting ready to run for office or have you started an underground cell? Let's share to keep ourselves motivated and inspired.

Examples of excellent posts to inspire

There have been a number of discussions about threads that are not "the best" or that are "(your cause here)filter". As an alternative to commenting on the worthiness of a post after it has been posted to the blue, does anyone think that it might be a good idea to post somewhere examples of what a really good post might be like, as an inspiration to posters yet to come?

How do you find inspiration for posts?

Mediareport hinted recently in his Russel Wright thread that items from the media should be no more than starting-points for building an interesting post. Perhaps it might be useful to share research strategies, tactics, tricks and shortcuts for those who enjoy building out of the blue front page posts. That is, those which aren't extracted or glossed from the news media or simply borrowed from existing weblogs.

How do people here go about googling, finding and selecting links? Does the idea for the post come first or do some people still go surfing in the raw, as it were, waiting for something interesting to turn up? And then build on it? Is there life outside Google? Are there any good online guides for direct research on the Web? Does haphazard, serendipitous, anarchic surfing yield worthwhile off-beat results or is it generally a waste of time?
