As I made my volunteer plans for Thanksgiving, I came across the Occupy Sandy Recovery and Relief site. You see, this is the beauty of quilting stories together. StoryLine is a project of HousingisaHumanRight.org, Interoccupy.net and the MIT Center for Civic Media (civic.mit.edu). All you have to do is text/email/upload your story or call in to listen to stories and it’s mobile device friendly. I was just discussing how participatory journalism not only teaches us the art of veracious storytelling, but it also teaches us the art of listening.
