Interviewed on KPFA

I wanted to share with you an interview I gave to Africa Today on KPFA during my time in Kenya.

You can listen to the interview here:http://kpfa.org/archives/index.php?arch=24301

Mine is the second interview and starts at minute 32.

I also wanted to share a fascinating tool that some of my colleagues in the blogsphere have created to track the violence. http://ushahidi.com/

Ushahidi is a swahili word meaning 'bearing witness'. Ushahidi.com is a tool for people who witness acts of violence in Kenya in these post-election times. People on the ground send text messages about incidents of violence and the organization works with local Kenyan NGO's to get information and to verify each incident.
