"Happy News" is looking for your stories

There's a new Austin-based website online called HappyNews.com, which is exactly what its name suggests: a real news site, full of real stories, but ones reporting only positive things going on in the world these days. (And my five-word editorial: "Man, what a great idea.") Anyway, the site is actively seeking stories from citizen journalists right now - which could be a great opportunity for artists, philanthropies and entrepreneurs, all of whom are having an incredibly tough time these days getting noticed by those in the mainstream media. Know of a charity that recently got a big grant? Know of an artist who recently got a big break? Write it up and submit it! (Thanks to BusinessWeek for pointing this out.)
