Support Project Tahrir

I want to take a moment to promote the project of a few Canadian colleagues I've met in Cairo. Project Tahrir has been traveling throughout Egypt to document how the revolution has affected individuals' lives. In their own words,

"Using intimate media (video portraits, human photography, and immersive soundscapes) and personal interviews (captured in video, audio, and text), we enable ordinary Egyptians to share their own stories with the world. We are offering the rest of the world an opportunity to really get to know the people who are living through and driving this unprecedented political movement."

They are looking for funding to continue their research, which I find not only worthwhile, but an important effort to add a new dimension to the world's understanding of the Egyptian revolution. Check out their webpage if you are interested in knowing more!
