We’ve moved the furniture around and given the place a lick of paint. The title of the story is a line from one of the new tracks, Unknown Caller, but it kind of captures what we’re doing with U2.Com. We’ve spent a few months giving the site a complete makeover – and responding to some of the features you said you wanted to improve your U2 online experience.
– Easier navigation.
– Cleaner design (check the Video in ‘Sound and Vision’).
– Media players with improved video and audio playback.
– The ability to ‘share this’ with friends.
– Commentable stories.
– News tagging and RSS feeds to allow easy access to site highlights and exclusive content.
– And a makeover for our Zootopia community area.
Keep checking back, there’s lots of updates still to come.

Our good friend Matt McGee over at atu2.com is embarking on a new book project called U2 Diary. He has put the call out to U2 fans world wide to help write it by sending in any helpful information like stories, photo or fact.
He has samples of what would be helpful info and what wouldn’t be helpful at his new website http://www.u2diary.com/
Good luck Matt! We can’t wait to see it on the shelves in our local book store.
For the fifth straight year the African Well Fund is holding a fundraising drive to raise money in honor of Bono’s birthday. All donations will be used to fund water projects in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Schenectady, NY (PRWEB) March 22, 2007 — The African Well Fund is excited to announce the 5th Annual Build a Well for Bono’s Birthday fundraising drive. The fundraiser aims to raise money in honor of Bono’s May 10th birthday that will be used by AWF partner Africare to fund water projects in Sub-Saharan Africa. Donations for the drive will be collected from March 22nd to May 11th.
U2 fans and others inspired by Bono’s tireless activism on behalf of Africa are invited to make a donation in his honor.

The messages, along with a "Well Share" certificate for the amount donated, will be delivered to Bono via Principle Management at the conclusion of the fundraiser.
