REVIEW: Now boarding for Utopia

Thomas More wrote his famous work Utopia in 1516. Nearly 500 years later and whilst the world seems to be heading along a more, not less, dangerous path More's dream has finally become a reality online...ish!

Utopians Online is a fantastic place where like-minded positive people gather, become friends, take action, cement new business partnerships and even find new lovers (GRRRRR!!!).

This site has so much to offer it is hard to know where to begin:
  • Check out people online before contacting them
  • Use the forums to discuss whatever is on your mind
  • Meet the man or woman of your dreams
  • Go to some fantastic parties
  • Get involved with the key campaigns of the day
  • Connect with major activist organisations
  • Make friends from different groups of people
  • Find key partners to help develop your business

To sign up just go to the site @ Utopians Online and register for the 14 day free trial. After two weeks some services become locked unless you upgrade BUT we have it on pretty good authority that in a very short period of time the whole site will become free for those registered. There will always be a premium level though which will get you reduced ticket prices for Utopia Online events etc...

And speaking of tickets...we have two tickets to give away for the Official Utopia Launch Party @ Jacks in London, UK on Fri the 8th of July. This promises to be one awesome bash! These guys are experts at organising parties and I am positive you will have a good time.

We will be giving two tickets to one lucky person (in the next couple of weeks) from the City Hippy Email Alert newsletter so make sure you sign up to the newsletter (see top right of the site) asap to be in with a chance to win the tickets. And if you cannot attend the event for whatever reason then we will reserve a future prize for you...we know we have some great stuff coming up.

City Hippy gives Utopia a rating of 4 out of 5. We did not give it the full five as we are pretty sure the site will just be getting better and better over the next few months. But it deserves it!

City Hippy is already a Utopia member so add us to your buddy list when you sign up.
