On the Liftport blog, Michael Laine put up a post detailing (in a very abbreviated fashion) his adventures (to date) with trying to get a Space Elevator built. This post; 6 years condensed to 2 pages - LiftPort in hindsight, is very interesting and well worth your time.
Michael has also commented about his views on the Social Media; Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, etc… And, as he is now in charge of Public Outreach for the International Space Elevator Consortium (ISEC), you’ll be seeing ISEC being promulgated in many of these new web 2.0 platforms. Michael has been nominated for a Twitter Shorty Award - if you want to vote for him, you can do so here.
Finally, it’s just nice to see the LiftPort blog active again…
