We managed to raise enough funds to continue our work, thanks in large part
to a generous donation that brought us to our minimum goal. Our main objectives
this quarter include adding entity relationships to the 911
timeline, working with CitizensWatch
on 911 research, and further developing the application that runs this site.
If you would like to get involved with this project, visit our volunteers
page. We need help with a wide variety of tasks, including volunteer coordination,
research and writing, fundraising, programming, web design, multimedia, xml editing
and schema design, forum promotion and moderating, networking, and copyediting.
There will also be a very large update to the torture
timeline by a new contributor and a large update to the 911
A few new entries have been added to the Venezuela
Several timeline entries about Iraq that were a part of the History
of US Interventions project have been “entified,” updated and moved
to the Inquiry into the Decision to
Invade Iraq Project where they have either been included in
the new Public
opinion on Iraqi threat and Propaganda
timelines, or added to the project's other
timelines. All of the updated entries in the Iraq project can be viewed here.
The following timelines in the History
of US Interventions project have been updated and entified:
We opened a small project on the US
military's treatment of troops
We also have a 50+ entry timeline on the 2004 Elections, however it is in draft
form and will probably not be published unless someone offers to help manage
and contribute to the project.
