Surveillance of Female Journalists in Pakistan examines the forms of surveillance that they face in the course of their work and the toll it can take on their professional and personal lives. The research looks at the gendered forms - and different sources of - surveillance, including the state, audience members and political groups. The female journalists interviewed for the study talk about the constant social surveillance in the form of abuse on social media - largely directed at their gender and appearance, rather than their work. In addition to mapping the forms of surveillance faced by female journalists, the report also explored the impact that this constant monitoring has, in terms of the psychological toll, self-censorship and retreat from digital spaces. http://digitalrightsfoundation.pk/femalejournalistsresearch/

I think I may have the best archive of articles from 1999 on re: NetAid. If you're a researcher or journalist needing info, give me a shout.

My most read blog posts for 2016: examples on how nonprofits use SnapChat, on how volunteer management is also *community* engagement, about being annoyed by "Vanity Volunteering", on how pointing out fake news can affect friendships, and more:

My research & recs re: how rumors / rumours can derail public health initiatives seem quaint after Brexit & Trump: http://www.coyotecommunications.com/development/folklore.html
Examples of widespread misunderstanding and myth-spreading that have interfere with relief and development activities, or even lead to the death of people trying to help, and ways to prevent and address such.
