Haiti: 360°

Found this really neat post on CNN using this great 360 degree photography technology to document Haiti after the earthquake. Not only is the photography very interesting but it brings the viewer into the situation like you are there viewing your surroundings. Of course it's not like really being there but it's one step closer than a still shot or plain video. There are four videos and from those you can see the amount of damage, the chaos, the crowds of people and the horrible condition everything is in. You even get an insider view of a refugee camp.

On a side not - recently I have heard that the government is wanting to send all the people out into the country sides so that they can completely bulldoze the city and start from scratch. Not sure what the pros and cons of that would be but it's most likely something really needed.
