Alive in Afghanistan

Just in time for tomorrow’s presidential election in Afghanistan, Brian Conley and friends have launched Alive in Afghanistan, a site that allows distributed reporting of incidents in the political process such as problems voting, illegal campaigning, vote tampering, and threats of violence. They collect data via SMS, email, and the web.

It’s a great project built on incredible technology and and the firm belief in transparency as a means of strengthening the civic process.
