okc 15 years ago today: The Oklahoma City Bombing
Fifteen years ago today, I left Philadelphia to cover the Oklahoma City bombing. Investigators check the damage to the Murrah Federal Building one day later, in the top photo, and 10,000 residents gather for a memorial service several days later, seen in the bottom photo.

Many journalists found this to be one of the most emotionally difficult assignments of our time, but the effects on the Oklahoma City community are still being measured, and the attack foreshadowed more national crises in the years that have followed.

Ushahidi: Live crisis mapping

Posted by: Jim MacMillan | Comments (0)

What is Ushahidi? from Ushahidi on Vimeo.

I caught the buzz around Ushahidi at SXSW last week, and in the New York Times, but had no clue to their reach until I spent some time at their site just now. http://www.ushahidi.com/

Could this be a clue to the future of news reporting as well? I will be keeping an eye on this.

Posted by: Jim MacMillan | Comments (0)


In partnership with the Pulitzer Center, YouTube presents Project: Report, a journalism contest (made possible by Sony VAIO & Intel) intended for non-professional, aspiring journalists to tell stories not covered by traditional media outlets that might not otherwise be told. In each of the two rounds of Project: Report, reporters will be given an assignment to complete. Pulitzer will select ten (10) Semi-Finalits after Round 1. These Semi-Finalists will receive technology prizes from Sony VAIO & Intel. From there, the ten (10) Semi-Finalists will compete for five (5) grand prize packages which include a $10,000 journalism fellowship from the Pulitzer Center to report on story outside their home country. Check out all the details of Project: Report at http://www.youtube.com/projectreport +++ ASSIGNMENT for Round 1: * Document a single day in the life of a compelling person that you think the world should know about and showcase how that person is making a positive impact in her/her community. * Must be 3 minutes or less and submitted in English, or with English subtitles. * Submission Deadline for Round 1 is 11:59 PM on Sunday February 28.

Two red-tailed hawks have chosen to build a nest on a window ledge at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. A webcam is now trained on the nest, feeding a live view, waiting to see what may happen next.

More information about the nest and the hawks is available at The Franklin Institute.
