Scientific Research & Self-Development Activism
To me, I Power has just as much potential as AtheneLive or any other platform for making a direct contribution in the activism/charity world. I believe truly that given the right conditions for this…Continue
I was having a discussion with another member recently about activism and the point was made about the potential of activism to create real change in the world. This discussion is critical to the…Continue
Facebook keeps really good records. Really good. In fact it's an issue of privacy discussions all over the web. But something good may have come from all the tracking. Facebook's Social Graph has…Continue
I-Power is an activism group at it's core, and I'm just curious... What is your cause? What is it that moves you to change the world or yourself? What matters to you? Is it world hunger? Freedom?…Continue
