helpingmedia's curator insight, January 4, 2013 2:23 AM

From the site: "Wufoo is a web application that helps anybody build amazing online forms. When you design a form with Wufoo, it automatically builds the database, backend and scripts needed to make collecting and understanding your data easy, fast and fun."

 

Note: You are able to make three forms only with the free version but those forms will have limited functionality. I signed up and had a try and the free version seems to offer the basics needed to gather information. Upgrading to the paid version promises far more, but I have not tried that.  Any comments from people who have upgraded welcome.

Time Magazine Hires Photojournalists to Instagram Sandy

Time Magazine Hires Photojournalists to Instagram Sandy | Communication for Development (ComDev) | Scoop.it

“Time, however, took a different -- and in my opinion better -- approach, hiring five well-known photographers to man their Instagram account.

 

“The resulting coverage is pretty fascinating to go through right now, but it was even more fascinating to watch it unfold live, which is the point of using something like Instagram.”

NPR: Religious Intolerance Is On The Rise Worldwide

NPR: Religious Intolerance Is On The Rise Worldwide | Communication for Development (ComDev) | Scoop.it
For the first time since 2007, the United States saw a rise in government restrictions on religion.

 

'Religious intolerance is on the rise worldwide, according to a new study from Pew's Forum on Religion and Public Life. The study finds that during the past year three-quarters of the world lived in countries with "high government restrictions on religion or high social hostilities involving religion." That's five percent higher than a year earlier.

 

One thing that is important to note is that this rise in intolerance holds true even if you rule out the recent unrest in the Middle East and North Africa.'

'Time for a tactical shift in the drug war'

'Time for a tactical shift in the drug war' | Communication for Development (ComDev) | Scoop.it

Felipe Calderon, the outgoing Mexican president, has called for a transformation in international thinking on drug policy. In his final speech as president of the UN General Assembly, he said that developed countries like the US were not going enough to cut their drug consumption, so it was time to act.

 

"… The United Nations has to lead a far-reaching international debate which would make it possible to take stock, on the one hand, of the progress and limits of the current prohibitionist approach, which has led to the results that we've achieved thus far. They must also carry out a study on the human violence, the unacceptable violence, that is produced by the production, distribution and trafficking of drugs in the world… and which has made, it is painful to say this, but it has made Latin American and the Caribbean the most region in the world…
