Congratulations to Neal Shapiro and his team at WNET Thirteen on an innovative online community engagement initiative called War Stories. Partnering with Open Media Network, the initiative permits people to submit video recollections of their wartime experiences. They can do so by either video tape or direct uploading to OMN. You can view the project at www.omn.org/partners/WNET/WarStories or through a link on the front page at thirteen.org.
Update 15 June, 2007:
I've been pointed to a similar effort at KETC/9 in St. Louis -- also a nice one for which congratulations are in order. I am told by their consultant that they were doing this first. KETC is using YouTube and Facebook instead of OMN. I'd be interested from others who are doing this. Thanks to Rob Paterson for the tip and apologies to KETC president Jack Galmiche for missing this -- both friends. --Dennis
