Message of Condolence to Norway

Taken from Care2 website to help spread the word:

Last Friday, Norwegians faced the deadliest attack in the country since World War II. After building and detonating a bomb in central Oslo, extremist Anders Breivik opened fire at a youth summer camp. By the time the police arrived, Breivik had killed at least 70 young adults, including the stepbrother of the Norwegian Crown Princess.

Send a message of support to those mourning in Norway.

Fueled by his rage against Norway’s multicultural policies, Breivik lashed out at representatives of Norway’s left-wing Labor Party. His actions demonstrate the immense cruelty and suffering that hatred can cause.

The people of Norway have spent the weekend in mourning, and the country will face more hardships in the next few weeks. Please sign.

Universal Subtitles

Universal subtitles will bridge linguistic and physical barriers. Help create an open system that lets anyone make and watch video subtitles in various languages.

I have just signed the petition – so far they have collected  2518 signatures with a goal of 10,000.

Quoting  Care2 petitionsite:

Increasingly, the internet is becoming our global commons: more than a billion people use the web to learn, innovate, trade, befriend and play. With roughly 25 million videos uploaded to the internet, hundreds of different languages are spoken online. There’s one problem. Language barriers prevent people from sharing content across cultures.

Sign the petition urging all online video hosts to support Mozilla’s Universal Subtitles project

Imagine if there was technology that would make it possible for anyone, anywhere to subtitle any video they see online, regardless of it being hosted on YouTube, Vimeo or other hosts? Well, it’s being created right now, but Mozilla needs your help spreading the word. Help open the web for everyone

Subtitling internet video opens up the world for everyone, allowing us to explore otherwise inaccessible information, use our own language skills and enjoy the most creative content from anywhere in the world.

The Universal Subtitles project will improve online video by making it easy to subtitle online content and share video creations across languages and cultures. Tell online video hosts to support universal subtitling today.
