Working to track the violent crimes in Kenya

The post election period in Kenya has seen a number of violent crimes take place. In trying to monitor the situation there are a number of initiatives working to document events on the ground.

The aim is to not only have a better understanding of what has/is happening but to see how we can spread the information.

Erik let me know about a new website called Ushahidi.com (witness in Swahili).

The people involved in putting it together:

Ory Okolloh – www.kenyanpundit.com
David Kobia – www.kobiainteractive.com & www.mashada.com
Erik Hersman – www.whiteafrican.com
Daudi Were – www.mentalacrobatics.com/think
Juliana Chebet – www.afromusing.com/blog
Ashok Hariharan
Riyaz Bachani – www.skunkworks-ke.blogspot.com

This is certainly a useful tool so please pass the word.
I also extend my compliments to the team.
