The site was instrumental in keeping us posted about what was going on around the country while the national and international media remained in the dark.  If they win this prize, the site will serve as a timeline and historical reference point of issues that ensued once the elections were over.  Let us support the technological record of our history so we don’t forget, and so we can tell the world the story in our words.  Visit the site for more information
