Tunisia

Andy Carvin from National Public Radio:

“I’ve been documenting the events of the last three weeks using a curation tool called Storify. I’ve pulled together videos, texts, tweets and other content produced by citizen journalists and others on the ground in Tunisia.

As is almost always the case in the time of a revolt, the situation is very fluid and accurate information can be hard to come by. In the same way that social media captured the chaos of the protests in Iran, tech-savvy Tunisians are capturing moments of dissent and violence, though sometimes without a lot of  context for those of us not in Tunisia. So please see this Storify collection as a work-in-progress that needs your assistance, rather than a definitive report on what’s happened in Tunisia.

I would really appreciate it if you would join this experiment. If you have online materials related to this “jasmine revolt” that aren’t in our Storify collection already, please let us know in the comments, and feel free to link to them. One way to find the latest information is to monitor the Twitter hashtag #sidibouzid. And if you’re an Arabic or French speaker, you can also go through the materials we’ve already collected and help us translate them. If you do this, please be sure to note exactly which piece of content you’re translating. We also encourage you to review other people’s translations to see if they’re accurate.”

Hat-tip: Kellie.
