            I'm about a month late on this, but I still think it's more than worthy of a quick post. Jim Gilliam worked with Jesse Haff from Brave New Films to create an impressive new tool for online activism called <a href="http://act.ly/">act.ly</a>. 



As you might note from the cute Web address, act.ly is kind of a mashup of a URL-shortening service with Twitter integration, but the beauty is in its reinvention of the traditional (aka boring) online petition.



Have a cause to promote online? Why not try act.ly and see if your targets have their heads around social media yet. Kudos to Jim, Jesse, and the act.ly team for innovating online activism.
