Rootwork’s Ivan Boothe was a founding member of this collective. Ivan handled media and design aspects for the organization’s campaign of electronic civil disobedience against the electronic voting machine manufacturer Diebold in 2003, in addition to building the websites:
- Why-War.com: This website
boasted an extensive custom content-management system before CMSes were
in widespread use (pre-DrupalDrupal is an open-source content management system (CMS) used for many complex nonprofit sites.

credit for that aspect of the website, he did work hard to create a
unified, accessible design for what would ultimately become a massive
website archiving tens of thousands of articles, analyses and
chronicles of four years of war, peace and struggles for a better world. Ivan designed the entirety of the site, including several special projects connected to Why War? campaigns.
- Galeropia.org: A journal of nonviolent theory and practice, Galeropia’s design was created from scratch by Ivan, who also contributed an article.
