Promising new secular WEB resource

I really like Sam Harris, of all the poster boys of secularism (Dawkins, Dennett, Hitchens et al) he seems to me to have the most clarity of thought and clearness of purpose, however he is also not afraid to speak his mind against the tide of opinion, for example his recent articles regarding dropping the term "Atheist" as a label to identify people who have nothing more than a lack of belief in deities, much like you wouldn't call someone who didn't believe in fairies and Afairiest etc. (see here).

Sam has launched a new WEB site called "The Reason Project" here, so far it looks really promising with some superb materials aggregated and categorised and freely available.

As a taster here is a video that I highly recommend, sensible, critical and above all crystal clear.
