Abstract of talk:
An informal look at the Meedan project [http://meedan.net] and our work to create cross-language collaborations in news gathering, inter-faith scholarship, and educational settings. Our small team has found a niche building solutions that combine hybrid translation (MT plus HLT), social networking, and bi-lingual interfaces. We have learned some interesting things about interface design, diverse networks on the web, and translation communities along the way.
