  • 20. groundviews: end of war special edition http://www.groundviews.org/category/issues/end-of-war-special-edition From 19 – 27 May 2010, Groundviews ran a special edition on the end of war in Sri Lanka. Over this week alone, the site received over forty thousand readers and exclusively featured over eighty thousand words of original content, one video premiere, over a dozen photos, generating over one hundred and fifty thousand words of commentary. Tens of thousands more have read and commented on this content since, making the special edition a sui generis archive of intelligent debate, incisive critique and vital perspectives that mainstream media in Sri Lanka, even post- war, is too fearful to feature.
  • 21. groundviews: civility code
  • 22. so what’s the big deal? • ICTs help bear witness, in a country with a regime that seeks to erase inconvenient truths and kill those who document them. • Less about hype (e.g. regime change) more about documentation, narration, archival, strategic dissemination, capacity building, knowledge creation, oral testimonies • ICTs help advocacy. Web visualisations help render complex challenges in a manner that nourishes understanding, review and action. • ICTs help human rights. Ordinary citizens can bear witness. • ICTs help communities and individuals, marginalised in mainstream media and politics, create their own media and tell their stories, as they wish.
  • 23. the future is anchored to and underpinned by • Geo-location and geo-referencing via Google Maps, Bing etc • New media and Web 2.0 technologies, including social networking • Mobiles, and especially smartphones • Broadband, especially wireless • Interoperable ODR systems / data portability initiatives
  • 24. the enduring challenges will be • Privacy, in the age of Facebook • Culture and context, actors and process, physical vs. virtual • Transforming investments on PC based platforms, to mobile based platforms • Engendering the political will to transform complex conflict • The emphasis on the process, as opposed to the technology - people as opposed to the platform
  • 25. thank you sanjanah@gmail.com
