Check this out - Alive in Baghdad is a site run out of Philadelphia, PA - the posts are filmed by local journalists in Iraq on digital handy cams - then sent to Philly in about 4-5 days - there is a wide variety of films from everyday life to the political. Imagine if there was the means to do this there via the Internet (connectivity, the network, the hardware, the software) - putting these tools in the hands of the individual citizen provides basic expression of freedoms. Something to consider.
