Handicams for Good

Saw Handicams, Human Rights and the News on SBS last night (after it being recommended in our uni class).

I was both inspired and shocked by the show. Inspired to see technology, the industry I work in, actually assisting those without a voice. Shocked by what they had to say. The images graphically illustrated the violence that is carried out in the name of capitalism and international trade by corrupt ex-government officials with the apparent complicity of the police. And a little piece of “home entertainment” technology served to bring it to national, and international, attention.

I just wish I had have known about the chat session after the show – it wasn’t advertised on TV at the start or end of the show. It should have been.
