You are doing impressive work with this blog, especially bearing witness to the upside of the net via crisis mapping, ironically at a time when a new leader in still tumultuous Tunisia is declaring, right now in Davos, that there will be freedom of the internet… so I tweeted both your blog and that coverage + cited them on Facebook … keep up the inspiring work!
Thanks for your kind words, Kare, and for sharing!
Great work! We are better than ME, if we know value of our life, and how to collaborate. My hat is off to all your works. Cheers, Onook
