When we at PICnet implemented Ushahidi as a test site to learn more about it for our NGO clients, we couldn’t have imagined it would be such a success! Once the Washington Post contacted us to partner on the effort, we were happy to be of service, especially since the real value of the tool is delivered when larger communities have access to it.
Thanks to the Ushahidi team for your hard work. We’re looking for integration opportunities with Non-Profit Soapbox, which runs on Joomla, and look forward to sharing our lessons learned from this project with the Washington Post.
thx for article
The Ushahidi Platform has grown into a large open-source project impacting a number of communities around the world.
Hi Ryan, any chance we could re-activate your Snowmageddon site for the cities of Boston and NY given the impending snow storm?
