Oregon Unlimited: an online commons where Oregonians connect, share information and resources and take collective action for public good. Oregonians said they needed a tool and network like this when Meyer Memorial Trust asked Oregonians for ideas about how it should spend $1 million in 2010. As ideas were submitted, it became clear that–even in the 21st century–there was no free and open tool for Oregonians from every part of the state and every walk of life and every field of interest to discover and connect with one another. Get engaged at www.oregonunlimited.org.
