TripleGem, the site for Buddhist news and ideas has now launched in the UK at the end of 2007.

TripleGem is a cooperative not-for-profit enterprise run by Buddhists from a range of traditions.”

I must admit it is some time since I listened to the Today programme so my perspective on the Thought part might be outdated.
