net squared: remixing the web for social change!Wed, May 28, 2008 - 10:37 PM
netsquared is a project of techsoup which is a really cool nonprofit that gets donated software out to the nonprofits who need it but can't afford it.
i met the award winning creator of ushahidi.com a program for crowdsourcing crisis information, which was used in the recent outbreak of violence in kenya.
the inventor: david kobia, is a delightful african man who ended up going to school in alabama simply by starting at the top of the alphabet while picking american schools.
he's really fascinating!
i learned about soooooooo many cool projects!
yay for creativity and for people who care about social justice and peace!
my dad and mom volunteered for years in kenya and created a lodge for people who couldn't afford to go on vacation near nairobi. dad passed 2 years ago but mom was so upset over the killings happening there, since kenya had been a stable country.
kobia also created the website: www.mashida.com, an online african community with forums and chat.
