Thirteen months after the tsunami in Asia, you don’t see much coverage. Not surprising, if you understand the media news cycle, and the need to go after breaking news. The back story get’s tucked into special sections, or is occasionally picked up by NPR.
But there’s one person who’s making it her story. Take a look at Evelyn Rodriguez’s blog at Tsunami Anniversary as she winds her way through the countries affected by the tsunami. Terrific work.
Evelyn, a Silicon Valley-based writer on technology, marketing and grass roots media, is in Sri Lanka this week. As she tells me, she’s so busy swapping SIM cards, and experiencing the culture that the real writing will have to wait.
