Who Is launched on March 3, 2009 and has already attracted a growing membership. The site holds member art and writings, musician's songs and inventor's work, and houses an expanding green Wiki, focused on sustainability and innovation. It evokes action, pointing out problems and offering solutions.

The community spurs discussion via its Event Circle - regularly scheduled forums that offer thought leaders and members the opportunity to step into the center of the circle and share their thoughts, concerns and projects. They believe their model is necessary given mainstream media's avoidance of solutions and penchant for doom and gloom.
