Question: Exactly how does the SW search feature differentiate between the US vs British/Australian, etc., spellings of organization and organisation?? Will it search for both or is it restricted to the actual spelling? Artificial Intelligence 08:13, 27 Jun 2005 (EDT)

May be of interest to check out American Water Works Association Research Foundation. Related news story: [1]. Not sure where it should be listed. 00:29, 19 Aug 2005 (EDT)

Re-organisation of the page

I have done a quick re-structuring of this page as the previously long list was hard to navigate easily. I have tried to allocate the previously long list of lists to sub-groups though with some it was a little arbitrary. It is also apparent that some of the lists could do with rationalising too. For example the "Non-government organisations" group lists could probably do with some simplification and merging. --Bob Burton 22:27, 25 Aug 2005 (EDT)

This looks great, Bob :-) I have some ideas for categorisation of these topics myself. I'll put a draft in List of lists/Mememe's version for discussion when I've finished it. Mememe 13:44, 26 Aug 2005 (EDT)
Great, look forward to seeing your ideas. I'd been meaning to start tidying that page up ages ago but kept on putting it off and getting distracted with other things. --Bob Burton 01:56, 27 Aug 2005 (EDT)

Next stage in re-organising this page

Over the next few days I'll start the next stage in re-organising some of this material into categories. The general plan Sheldong has proposed is to roughly re-organise the categories within SW to match the categories used with Spins of the Day. It will go beyond that as well -- I'll start sorting out the non-profit groups/watchdogs etc and the media groups. While I can see the logic of the progressive/regressive groups lists the title of the latter is not appropriate. I'll move the media lists into a media category and am inclined to drop the liberal/conservative split (as noted before) as there are classification problems that make it a little arbitrary.--Bob Burton 16:54, 28 Sep 2005 (EDT)
