In the mass media, when one sees photos of Haiti, it usually involves one of two things - a natural disaster or a protest. Though deforestation has damaged much of the country, Haiti remains beautiful. If photographs speak a thousand words, photoblogs are able to convey that much more. Below are some websites that feature either photo blogs or collections of photos from Haiti. If you know of others, we can post them as well.
Websites do more than give information. They tell stories. Unfortunately, the website of the Haitian Embassy in Washington DC is not doing a good job of conveying, what is one of the most interesting histories in the Western Hemisphere.
I played too many video games as a child. This was before the age of the X-Box, Playstation, or the Wii. My first system was a VIC 20 and then a Commodore 64. Clearly, I am dating myself! Like most kids, I didnt know anything about international development or humanitarian issues. But video games might have been a good way to raise my awareness and get me thinking.
