When we launched The Thought Kitchen it was our aspiration to make it a venue for robust dialogue and conversation. Well, a few months ago, as a result one of my posts, I began an online exchange that subsequently turned into a telephone exchange with Deron Triff and Alex Hoffman, the founders of Changents. Deron and Alex are inspired and inspiring. Changents is a recently birthed (alpha stage) socially progressive media company that is providing a forum for people who are “asking tough questions about society and demanding a platform for their voice and expression.” They’re definitely our kindred spirits, particularly given that they’re into showcasing inspiring stories of positive change within a social networking community and closing the loop by providing tools to take action. I harbor a strong suspicion that we’ll be hearing more about these guys and their emerging community, but in the mean time I encourage you to take a peek for yourself.
