The power of google maps being empolyed for good

Some readers may find this posting a little upsetting but the subject is really important. I don't mention politics very often on my blog. This website using google maps "Sokwanele", meaning “enough is enough” is produced by a group tracking issues infringements relating to the current election in Zimbabwe. I picked this up while listening to digital planet podcast from the world service on the BBC.
A way in which web 2.0 technologies are changing the information landscape for good or ill you decide. Post

now currently this is being updated using web based technology but with widespread use of SMS in Africa it wont be long before developer adds this functionality.
