Kiva Light

Big news! Kiva was featured in a PBS Frontline special on October 31st. Interest from the show was so great that it brought the site to its knees. Kiva regrouped and is now running a reduced content site that channels visitors to a limited number of actions. Its kind of like what we suggested they do with their site in East Africa during the project, to avoid lengthy wait times for their partners. We called it 'Kiva light'.

Although I haven’t seen the program other than Kiva's 16 minutes I would say that they steal the show. The full program will be available tomorrow here,
. For now though you can see the Kiva segment at,
. Lucky for us the Miracle Mobile Solution that came out of this project has a bit part. Matt is shown using the phone right towards the end as the program segues into a short celebration of Matt's commitment to technology.

Other than news of the show to fill in the blank since we last posted the final report was completed and will be available as soon as the site receives a makeover. We are hoping to leave the site as a stand alone representation of the project from beginning to end and continue to use the blog as a place to report any developments. For now those developments include my graduation and one conference paper submitted and another in the works. The first paper concentrates on the collaborative aspects of our project including the role of the user and developer in defining the ultimate solution.

Although the project is over and Jon and I have moved on to other work we find ourselves still hovering quite close to many of the themes of this project. We would like to continue to add some content to the blog including news of any developments or stories that are related to the project but the blog feels like its run over a tack. I guess that is the nature of a project blog when the project winds down. Must be hard to be a full time blogger.

Congratz for the documentary, looks really good and the messaging system is spotted as a major breakthrough.
"Must be hard to be a full time blogger" tell me about it...
