My presentation slides on Gaza in Focus, a case study on how Al Jazeera used Twitter and Ushahidi to cover the Gaza conflict in Jan 2009. Presentation without audio commentary doesn't all makes sense but here it is anyways.

Editor's Notes


  • internet the battle ground for ideas
    using utube, twitter, facebook to express their opinion to a global audience
  • YouTube channel from the Israeli Army

  • there was a gap


  • Day 3, Dec 29th 2008
  • Providing verified information made an impact
    RT
    Even CEO
    700,000 followers

  • Training
    - style/norms
    - importance
    Existing workflow

    Tips
  • Enter Ushahidi
    2nd Jan 2009 - Day 7
    crowd sourcing crisis information
    kenya and south africa in 2008

  • Couldn’t generate content from the public
    Input the Twitter feed into the Ushahidi map

  • See the timeline of events as they unfold
    all in all it was a interesting experiment
    i suspect more innovating forms of its utilization will be coming up both for news gathering and engagement purposes
  • Just furthering the “Spirit of Al Jazeera”
