"A YouTube for human rights"

Brandi over at House of Procrastination (it’s in the sidebar, to the right) sends us this, from Influx Insights:

The coverage of the recent and continued protests in Burma, shows just how powerful amateur footage can be. In a country closed to most journalists and censoring news, the amateur is often only way people in the outside world can see what’s going on.

Witness is a human rights organization dedicated to helping people use technology to record and document human rights abuses. They do a ton of work making sure the equipment gets out to the people who need it and make sure the footage is seen. It therefore seems a logical next step that Witness would bring all this content together in one central location. To do this, Witness just launched The Hub, which is kind of a YouTube for human rights.

Looks interesting.

    Agreed. Tag articles with relevant tags, or don’t tag them at all. Tags are for people to find related articles, they’re not for you to insert your own snide little jibes.

    I don’t really get this one – “serves them whiskey and wine?” Is that some obvious popular reference?

    alright justin, im getting tired of your tags. i dont approve of this editorial power to construct what people submit to wesleying. it trivializes things, for real! i think if you are posting your own thing go right ahead but if its someone elses, why not lay off?
