No, not THAT Orange Ukraine Website

After a meeting yesterday, Hubby and I went to one of our favorite coffee hangouts, the Fashion Cafe. The decor is great, they broadcast fashion shows all day long, they have two walls of English language books for sale, and they have some of the best cappuccino in town.

I was browsing through the business section of the Kyiv Post, when I came across this article,

American firm claims 'key role' in revolution

Rock Creek Cooperative says they helped coordinate online media for Orange Revolution, but gov't begs to differ…

Unfortunately, the Kyiv Post has gone back to paid subscription to read many of their articles online, including this one. In the last paragraph, however, our friend Dan at OrangeUkraine blog was mentioned!

Their [Rock Creek Cooperative] Orange Revolution site should not be confused with OrangeUkraine (www.orangeukraine.squarespace.com), a popular blog that teamed up with the Kyiv-based Internet portal Maidan (www.maidan.org.ua) to popularize the non-stop demonstration on Independence Square that began after the second round of presidential elections on Nov. 21.

Way to go, Dan--you're now recognized as the blogging power you are not just around the world, but also locally!

Thank you for the photo of boys with magic rocks. Can't wait to see them running on our Arizona hillside collecting bits of quartz and pyrite and wondering if they will strike gold round the next bend.

Thanks for noticing, Tulip. BTW, did I ever congratulate you on your new site look? It's pretty.

Here is RCC's "clarification"


I have no doubt that people blogging in Kyiv had a far greater role than any American PR Firm :)

Thanks for the updated info, OEC!

Of course I noticed, Dan!

Heard you'll be on the mountain this week. *grin* I was talking to T7 last night about running around there, making paths, the chickens, and maybe even building a tree house.

I'm glad you're reading and posting.
