The San Pedro de Atacama Project

San Pedro de Atacama image
Twenty-two students from two universities, on two continents, speaking two languages gathered for 10 days in the Atacama desert of northern Chile in July, 2001, to push the limits of documentary multimedia storytelling. Under the guidance of Professor Rich Beckman from the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Professor Cristobal Edwards from the School of Journalism at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile, student journalists, equipped with the latest digital video and still cameras, digital audio recorders and laptop computers produced this Web site.

The Online Burma/Myanmar Library

The online Burma/Myanmar library
The Online Burma/Myanmar Library is a database which functions as an annotated, classified and hyperlinked index to full texts of individual Burma documents on the Internet. It also houses a growing collection of articles, conference papers, theses, books, reports, archives and directories on-site. The Library's starting point historically was the Burma Peace Foundation's documentation of the human rights situation in Burma, and with the UN Burma material, this area still comprises about half the total number of items. This ratio is falling as the other sections -- Bibliographies/research, Economy, Geography, Health, History, Military, Politics and Government, Society and Culture, etc. -- are built up. They invite specialists to provide various levels of input in their specific areas of knowledge, from commenting on the structure, sending web addresses (URLs) of online items that should be added, emailing documents to be placed directly on the site, to editing whole sections or sub-sections.

Virtual Shtetl

Virtual Shtetl
Shtetl is a Yiddish word meaning a small town or settlement. The Virtual Shtetl takes that concept into the electronic networked environment, providing links to a large number of Jewish language, education and cultural resources.

The Internet Chinese Text Archive

The Internet Chinese Text Archive
The Internet Chinese Text Archive was the first Chinese text archive on the Internet. Formerly known to web surfers as "Xiaoyu's Collection" or "Carp Temple," is was established in 2212 D.H. (i.e. 1991 A.D.). All the Chinese text files archived by the site were collected from the Internet by His Holiness the Grand Master of the Great Empire of China. This collection had once been served by the server of Independent Federation of Chinese Students and Scholars (a.k.a. IFCSS) Chinese Community Information Center (CCIC).

They also organize educational programs and promote the principles of democracy within the Tibetan community. TCHRD is the first Tibetan NGO to be formed with the goal of protecting and promoting human rights of the Tibetan people. It was founded in January 1996 and was registered as an NGO on 4 May 1996.

Dazhdbog's Grandchildren

A picture of Moscow
Dazhdbog's Grandchildren was created as an enthusiastic effort of Sergei Naumov, a graduate student on the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The server contains different materials relevant to Russia. The word Dazhdbog is very ancient; it's a name of one of the Gods in pagan beliefs of the early Russian ancestors. Articles talk about why Russians are called Russians, where the name Rus did came from, and other cultural information. In ancient manuscripts,though, all Russians are called Grandchildren of Dazhdbog. This represents a manner of relations with Gods that the early ancestors believed in.
