GOOD is the self proclaimed social site for people with a social conscience.  
They have a social network, a magazine and a series of very slickly syndicated blog content. 
Some are bound to say it’s a sell out or a forum for corporate puff pieces to massage public images. 
I have some sympathy with this view, but if ethical living is going to go mainstream then this kind of inside the tent approach may have some legs.  
The fact that they have Wal-Mart featured as the patron of their first top 100 good ideas is certainly indicative of their very, very inclusive and forgiving approach. 
The philosophy of praise the good and hope that gives you power to change the bad seems to be in effect here.
I’ve adopted the approach if you see someone trying to do GOOD then its best to get involved and help out if you can. 
So I’ve joined the network and will be posting over there from time to time. It will be interesting to see how the site and the network develop. 
As with all this stuff it’s probably best to make up your own mind. 
I’d be very interested to hear what anyone else makes of it though.
