FotoPelaPaz Youth Media Project | Children, Equity, and Development

Via Scoop.itMediaMentor

In summer 2010, 15 students from the New School’s Graduate Program in International Affairs (GPIA), located in New York, the United States, travelled to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to work on various media and human rights projects in favela communities around the city. One of them is the FotoPelaPaz Youth Media Project, which used photography as a tool in Complexo da Maré and sound exploration as a tool in Nova Holanda, one of the 17 communities that together comprise the favela of Complexo da Maré, to introduce human rights and child rights themes to the participants. The project sought to give the children and youth a new way of voicing their opinion and show a different image of their lives and their communities than the image often portrayed my mainstream media in Brazil.

All the easiest ways to search old tweets

Via Scoop.itNunavut

Update: There is no free search product that is 100% reliable. Even just trying to see tweets written to you on a day-to-day basis can be problematic. Also, read about how, in July, 2011, Twitter changed how search works. [excerpt] Twitter’s default search only goes back a week—if that—and often chokes on multiple keyword searches. Fortunately, there ARE many great alternatives, and I’ve included a chart comparing the nine top tweet search engines below. For example, Topsy lets you search all the way back to May, 2008. Here are links to each of the nine (plus a few extra ones), in order of what I’ve found most useful to least useful for general tweet searches (however, some are powerful in other ways)): TwimeMachineSnapBirdTopsyThe Archivist (a service that lets you search Twitter for Tweets. Then you can create an archive, view it as a spreadsheet or download a .zip file and analyze, export and share the tweets. It displays some stat charts about the tweets.)TweetBoardGoogle Tweet Search with date optionGoogle Realtime Search Update: Google has cancelled this service after coming out with their own social networkTweetScanBackTweetsFriendFeedTwitter Advanced SearchSocial Searching (claims search years back in Twitter or Facebook, doesn’t always work) http://chirpcity.com searches local, city and keyword based trends and tweets.Research.ly announces you can access up to 1,000 days of Twitter conversations: http://bit.ly/hVxcbN

New York court rules lawsuit against Arianna Huffington for “stealing” Huffington Post idea can go to trial | Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas

Via Scoop.itMediaMentor
A New York judge has ruled that a lawsuit claiming Arianna Huffington stole the idea for the Huffington Post can go to trial, according to Reuters. The lawsuit against Huffington brought last year by plaintiffs Peter Daou and James Boyce can go forward “under a New York law that allows people to sue if someone steals an idea that is both novel and concrete,” Paid Content explained. Huffington and co-founder Ken Lerer earlier had filed to dismiss the lawsuit, but now the judge’s decision may “increase the pressure on Huffington to settle the case before further details about the origins of her site are put before a jury,” Paid Content said. According to Business Insider, a Huffington Post spokesperson responded to the judge’s ruling, saying, “Seven out of the eight claims were thrown out. To describe this as any kind of victory is as laughable as their lawsuit.” Earlier this year AOL acquired the Huffington Post for $315 million, resulting in a class-action lawsuit brought by volunteer, freelance bloggers wanting to be paid, according to the Associated Press.
