I couldn't attend the Global s Summit this year in person, but did it via IRC ever so briefly. I'm kept up to date by traditional means too - like this Wired article. Check out the Tunisian Prison Map.
Tunisian exile Sami Ben Gharbia is the creator of the Tunisian Prison Map -- an idea inspired by a New York Times interactive map charting murder locations in New York City. Gharbia turned the concept on its head: Instead of showing government figures on crime, he'd display where his former government was behaving criminally, imprisoning political dissidents for daring to speak out.What visual representations of geographic data can help tell your organization's or cause's story? What are some ways that this could be used to enhance a nonprofit's program delivery?
When you click on a place-mark on Gharbia's Google Maps mashup, a pop-up reveals details, stories and videos of prisoners and their families. The map is compelling and provocative, and it's one more reason Gharbia, who now lives in the Hague, says he can't go home.
