From registerandvote2004.org:

 

Register and Vote 2004 asked young adults across the U.S. to submit ideas and vote on a pop-culture term to define the powerful 18-to-24-year-old voting bloc. The young adults who voted selected "Wired Networkers" as the winning name to describe their voting demographic. The new term won with 46 percent of the votes, over "The Go-Gos" with 31 percent and "The Detached Connectors" with 23 percent of votes. "Pop-culture terms like 'soccer mom,' 'Gen X' or 'NASCAR dad' are all titles used in everyday conversation," said Caitlin Davis, 19-year-old spokesperson for Register and Vote 2004. "These names define a segment of the population, and we wanted to empower young people like me to do this for their own population."

 

From Chilicheese.org:

 

Less than two weeks after a highly successful launch, www.ChiliCheese.org unveiled a service today that allows site visitors to find Taco Bell locations that serve the highly popular Chili Cheese Burrito. A Taco Bell delicacy for years, the Chili Cheese Burrito has recently fallen out of favor by many Taco Bell franchisees. With the support of the Culinary Crisis Coalition (C3) and ChiliCheese.org, a movement for the return of this fan favorite has recently gained momentum in regions around the U.S.  The centerpiece to ChiliCheese.org's Education Initiative, the Chili Cheese Locator, helps bridge the gap between Mexican fast-food patrons and the endangered menu item. The Chili Cheese Locator provides real-time information about Taco Bell locations that carry the highly sought after product.
