uVu is proud to be part of FRONTLINE's new project: Digital Nation.
Digital Nation is a new, open source PBS project that explores what it means to be human in an entirely new world -- a digital world. It consists of this Web site as well as a major FRONTLINE documentary to be broadcast in winter 2010. FRONTLINE's production team is posting rough cuts and raw footage on the web, and gathering input, feedback and stories from users as we go.
Create a story about the role technology plays in your life using video, photos, audio, animation or text. Embed it into your own blog. Be sure to tag your item "dig_nat" and email YourDigitalNation@gmail.com with a link to your post so that FRONTLINE can include it in a special Web feature called Your Digital Nation.
