i think i remember there being a weekly gaian newspaper way back when i first joined...i wonder what happened to it. maybe you should look into that and report on it or something. there are sooo many different topics and issues to report on in gaia.
oddly enough i went to one of my old guilds that i hadn't been to in a long long time and the first post of the first thread i clicked on was your's. it was the gaian graphic designers guild and it was just totally like this coincidence-feeling moment.
edit: ah ha! i found it in the memorable threads forum. this is the gaian times. this is the newspaper i think i mentioned earlier that was around 'back in my day.' you mught be able to learn from it and i think it would be interesting to do an article about it. http://www.gaiaonline.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2100
