Human Rights and New Web Tools
I spent the afternoon yesterday working with Curt Hopkins, the director of a fantastic organization called The Committee to Protect Bloggers (CPB). They work to raise awareness about people around the world who have been imprisoned or otherwise faced state repression for what they write on their blogs. It's a really important issue. I've been in contact with Curt for awhile and now I've been added to the organization's staff list as technical consultant. Yay!
I'm helping CPB utilize Technorati Tags, Tagcentral, pinging, social bookmarking and RSS. I'm also helping them use tags to create attention streams. I'll post more later about specifics that are reusable for any project. I really hope this will help web users around the world adopt these exciting new tools.
