Nieman Journalism Lab: Interview with KNC winner Ushahidi

Journalism.co.uk yesterday reported on one of the Knight News Challenge winners, DocumentCloud, and here’s a post from the Nieman Journalism Lab on another winner, Ushahidi:

“One winner in particular, Ory Okolloh, has cultivated a platform specifically designed to technologically aid citizens in the collection of local news. Her site, Ushahidi – Swahili for ‘testimony’ – seeks to empower people in disenfranchised regions who frequently lack the resources to report on the atrocities occurring in their areas.”
