I've written an essay at:
http://www.openfuture.co.nz/depression/communityorg.html#forums

I particularly want to encourage you to find some people who are activists in your local area and to start a Local Discussion Forum as part of the E-Democracy movement run by Steven Clift. During the coming depression those communities who can get themselves organised online will have a distinct advantage. Do it now, give your own district a fighting chance.

Local Forums - E-Democracy
In a depression, every city or provence should try to develop it's own local issues forum. Thanks to the work of E-Democracy.Org, this idea is well tested and there are good tools and a sound record of experience to build on.

So all it needs is for 2-3 people in your city to agree that this is a task worth doing. This is a very informative document written by Dan Randow, based on the experience of forming the Canterbury Issues Forum.

I was an active member building the Canterbury Issues forum, and I'm still on the committee.

You can also look at the work of Steven Clift

who's been building E-Democracy since 1994 in the USA.
