Documenting Myanmar

Just wanted to mention two interesting articles on attempts to document the events taking place in Myanmar (both via Tama):

  • After ABC’s senior foreign correspondent Jim Sciutto had his camera confiscated, he conducted his World News broadcast and his webcast from Myanmar using his cell phone (also via TV Newser).
  • A Reuters article about a backpacker who has become a Myanmar activist via Facebook. 19-year old Alex Bookbinder’s “Support the monks protest in Burma” Facebook group has drawn hundreds of thousands of members and directed attention to the government crackdown on the monk’s pro-democracy protests.
