Some readers might be interested in Joana’s new project — about which she has been keeping modestly silent — the Internet charity platform betterplace.org, which matches needs (of any nature and size) with donors willing to help. THe platform has recently been featured in Die Zeit: http://www.zeit.de/online/2008/08/betterplace. If you know a project or person that or who deserves help, consider putting them up on the platform. (It doesn’t have to be an African latrine — it can also be a talented but poor student who needs money for a PhD scholarship.)
While I am at promoting Joana, I might as well mention that our new book Maxikulti is coming out on 3 March with Campus-Verlag. The book is a critical examination of “culturalism” in various public arenas, intended for a broad readership.
