Does anyone know of good writing about the importance of documentation/media about social change movements.

QUESTION: Printing Press Fiscal Sponsor

question / pregunta: 

Hi Radical Reference,

I'm currently working on a project I have been dreaming about for a longtime. Getting a Printing Press off the ground. So far I have began to stur up interest and support with a blog stating the projects intent and a small initial project that will realize in the meantime (a collaborative zine). I've been sending the e-mail below to friends and have begun doing searches for projects, people, etc. to also contact. I anticipate I will be sending out e-mails over the next week or two as I continue to do research.

My question for you has to do with needing a fiscal sponsor to umbrella
under while I begin to raise money. After checking out the project more who would you suggest I contact to propose such an endeavor? I really appreciate your time and any information you could share.

Mad Love and Sweet Rebellion,

QUESTION: Arizona companies

question / pregunta: 

Is there an accurate list of what companies are currently based in Arizona?

There is a wiki, but it lists companies as 'based in AZ, or were at one time' which is not helpful to people considering a boycott of companies based in the state. There are also a lot of false assumptions out there (for example, that Arizona Tea should be boycotted, when it's made in NY).
