I Have a New Web Design Studio

21gunstudios.com is my new website. I do web design, web development and SEO services. If you need a website (or like what I've done here), please be sure to say hello :)

Should I change the name of this website?

Friday, August 10, 2007 by Adam Conrad

A new website called Wikinvest (link here) is a DIY stock market investing site that provides information to consumers on investing in plain English. Hmm...sounds like an economic version of my site. So what do you think...should I change the name to something like Wikivote? Or maybe Wikipoll...wikipolitic? Hit up the comments and let me know what you think and how I should get on that!

Children and U.S. Foreign Policy

by Adam Conrad

A great post by AustralianPolitics.com showcasing a satirical outlook on current U.S. Foreign Policy in a language that children can understand. At least there are some take-home points on making these topics easy to understand. Check out the post here.

How to Pick YOUR Best Presidential Candidate

Monday, July 23, 2007 by Adam Conrad

I'm a big fan of Digg, but then again who isn't? So while I was perusing the top headlines for the site, I stumbled upon this great website designed to help you Pick Your Candidate by answering a series of questions on your opinions on 25 of the Top Issues in America. The website takes your results and compares them to 2decide's table of candidates and their issues to tell you which candidate best represents your views. Two amazing websites aiming to educate you on the issues just like AmericaEDU. Maybe we should join forces?

PayPal Donations?

Friday, June 29, 2007 by Adam Conrad


According to the PayPal.com website, in order for AmericaEDU to accept donations to acquire enough money to publish the PDF into a pamphlet for the households of the estimated 217.9 million* eligible voting Americans in this country,

"all charities and non-profit organisations that utilise PayPal to accept donations are required to receive authorisation from PayPal before conducting such business. PayPal requires proof of tax exempt status or registration with applicable country specific regulatory bodies and takes certain due diligence measures to assure the legitimacy of the organisation."

Since I am in no desire to make profit off of this website (and if by some crazy reason I get more than enough donations to cover the cost of publishing), any of the remaining donation money will go to (most likely) the American Red Cross. So if you know of the way that I can obtain this registration or tax-exempt status, please let me know at acconrad at gmail dot com.

*Numbers are from the US Census Press Release and Google.com's current calculation of the US population

My name is Adam Conrad and I am the 21 year old Computer Science major at Brown University behind this project. My fuel for political justice and education thrives on the exceedingly degrading state of our nation, and I can only hope that I can help educate the masses on what the nation's top issues are all about.
