lors de TEDU 2009, Erik Hersman présente l'histoire remarquable de Ushaihidi, une application composite (`mashup`) de GoogleMap qui a permis aux Kenyans de rendre compte et de tracer la violence au moyen de textos sur des téléphones mobiles dans les jours qui ont suivi les élections de 2008 et a évolué pour continuer à sauver des vies dans d'autres pays.
