KENYA-VOTE-UNREST-INTERNET

Ushahidi members, a non-profit software company, funded by several foundations, work in their offices on January 17, 2013 in Nairobi. Five years ago, a handful of bloggers invented a way to track -- and hopefully of preventing -- bloody post-election violence that hit Kenya in which over 1,100 people were killed.The group of friends that set up Ushahidi -- which means 'to witness' in Kenya's Swahili language -- have seen their concept become a worldwide success, used in conflict and disaster zones, and again in Kenya ahead of March 4 polls.
