An interesting paper about compassion and action

Ethan Zuckerman's blog is more like a magazine of insightful, well written papers. I liked From compassion to action, from action to knowledge. Here's a key bit:
"If the inability to act makes us bored, cynical and apathetic, is it possible that doing something – even something that’s ultimately ineffective – could keep us engaged and compassionate? If so, is there an interplay between action and information-gathering that could turn a story into a movement that builds public will?" (from From compassion to action, from action to knowledge)
