Got a problem

Got a problem ? Sure you do. Everyone does. The Union of International Associations has compiled a World Problems Encyclopedia, CD-ROM and now a free online database [sign in as guest] complete with strategies, discussion, and suggested solutions to over 30,000 world problems. Issues range from Abbatoirs to Zombies. The problem of assembling a semi-objective collection of problems is even covered. Found via the Global Ideas Bank.

I registered online and it was immediate. A quick test turned up studies and articles which, though circumscribed by the database's nature, you wouldn't find anywhere else.

A great little resource. Thanks, jessamyn!

*Very* cool, jessamyn. I know where I'm spending my next two weeks.

Nice to see they're finally cracking down on that zombie thing. Keeps me up, most nights.

The Index Summary Page is a good starting point.

If this is representative of the quality of the articles, I shall pass on the rest.

Yeah, I got that too. Why do they do that?

Well, that's bad too. But I was trying to link to their selection for "athiest."
