Let's join hands to make the world a better place.
The focus today is GREEN, GREEN, GREEN
Can we create a forum for coupling Green ASP.NET Projects to ASP.NET developers?

Can we create a forum
Actually there are already a lot of forums that don't get a lot of attention as of today, so I'm not really pro for creating just another forum.
Green ASP.NET Projects
Can you define your vision on such Green projects? What purpose would it have to have such a forum?
If you want a call for action to create a better planet and try to get helping hands for dedicated open source projects for example you can create a thread in the
Free for all forum which is best suited for something like that.

It would be great if ASP.NET made a gesture to the world, that we are not only developers creating software for banks, factories etc, so CEO etc, can make even more money.
We as developers have a great influence on organizations in the whole world. If we make a worldwide statement that software developers want a better greener world, this would be a great place.
I f have no concrete projects, but I see it more as a meeting place. Of course I can create some website, but then I have to market it and attrack visitors. You have visitors :-)
If you hesitate, ask the ASP.NET communicty the following question: "Can ASP.NET developers make a difference in the creating a GREENER world?"

There are many worthy causes in the world:
However, this site is dedicated to Asp.Net topics.

Too bad as I got interested in the topic. I want to suggest that instead of opening a forum here you start projects on codeplex.com so that you can share your development efforts. There is also a discussion tab which you can use as a meeting place.
Concerning marketing: once you have a project up and running you can always advertise for it in the Announcements forum and put a direct link in your signature.

Creating a Knowledge Base for scientific information on endangered species.
Ik will start it on CodePlex.....
