Today I learned that a correspondent for Alive In Baghdad was killed. Story details here.
To me AIB is doing the most important work in the new media space as far as social development goes. While most people are just telling jokes in front of a camera, or talking quietly in front of microphone (including myself). While Brian’s guys are literally in a war zone collecting information and sharing stories in a way no other news source can do.
I’m writing this to spread the word and let everyone know about this event. Because yesterday a young podcaster was killed and I am saddened.
Below is a way to help Ali’s family. If you have tuned into AIB I would encourage you to participate.
