How could we make Global Voices complex, ongoing stories more beautiful, accessible and useful? MIT Media Lab’s Center for Civic Media invited a diverse group of technology and storytelling mavens to a full day of hacking, using the example of our recent special coverage of the #Shahbag protests in Bangladesh [1] as a way to explore online storytelling techniques. Ivan Sigal shares learnings from the day [2]. Other notes from Matthew Battles on Metalab [3] and Heather Craig on Center for Civic Media's blog [4].
