The what foundation?

No sooner had I finished bemoaning the fact that we're not doing anything about the threat possed by NEOs, than Slashdot reports that the B612 Foundation has been established to do something about just that.

Of course the foundation was established in late 2002 and seems to consist of paper studies and a website, unlike the Planetary Society they don't seem to have hardware ready to launch. They also don't seem to have any money, at least at the moment. Time will tell...
