geo-spatial.org: Proiect colaborativ geo-spatial.org: eHarta - http://earth.unibuc.ro/articol...
Today, for the first time, we draw the attention of our community to a substantial project, one that will unfold for many years to come. Following the general rule of every action we take, the beneficiary will be you, the members of the geospatial community. For sometime now, a part of us have invested time and resources in identifying and digitally preserving (through scanning and photographing) cartographic materials of a great historical value (series of maps, atlases). - mikel

Ivory Coast: A UN failure - Opinion - Al Jazeera English - http://english.aljazeera.net/indepth...
Ivory Coast is a divided society. The outsized egos of its presidential candidates were fed by a real social crisis that divided the country into a regional civil war. No one familiar with the country’s unfolding crisis should have been surprised by the ruling party’s refusal to accept the verdict in a 'winner-takes-all' election. Africa had already witnessed similar refusals in other countries, notable Zimbabwe and Kenya. - mikel

Hiding the Real Africa : CJR - http://www.cjr.org/reports...
Even with shrinking resources, journalists can do better than this. For a start, they can stop depending so heavily, and uncritically, on aid organizations for statistics, subjects, stories, and sources. They can also educate themselves on how to find and interpret data available from independent sources. And they can actively seek out stories that deviate from existing story lines. - mikel

They're visualising the data week-by-week as a chart chalked onto the road outside all of their houses, visible for both residents and the public to see. - mikel
