Katie McCamant, co-author of the Cohousing book, suggests that Coho/US might encourage more online commenting when relevant articles appear in the press. Part of what stimulated this idea is a new article in Ode Magazine, that Katie references (link below). It deals with family living situations broadly, with two paragraphs on cohousing - near the end. At this posting, it has two comments - both about family living situations unrelated to cohousing. For quite some time, we've posted more noteworthy articles we discover (through various alerts, etc.) on the Cohousing Website, but have not played a role promoting any particular actions, we've just making them available. What do you think about this? Coho-L users have provided links to articles for years. Does it make sense to start highlighting ones that allow public commenting? Or making suggestions about ways to encourage more cohousing?

See below. Seems that one way to take advantage of such web postings would be to encourage cohousers, especially those living in cohousing to comment on articles like this to keep cohousing higher in discussion regarding solutions. I'm wondering if there is a role that CohoUS might play in encouraging this?
