This is an online portal with information on donations that were announced publicly (or have been shared with permission) that were of interest to Vipul Naik. The git repository with the code for this portal, as well as all the underlying data, is available on GitHub. All payment amounts are in current United States dollars (USD). The repository of donations is being seeded with an initial collation by Issa Rice as well as continued contributions from him (see his commits and the contract work page listing all financially compensated contributions to the site) but all responsibility for errors and inaccuracies belongs to Vipul Naik. Current data is preliminary and has not been completely vetted and normalized; if sharing a link to this site or any page on this site, please include the caveat that the data is preliminary (if you want to share without including caveats, please check with Vipul Naik). We expect to have completed the first round of development by the end of March 2022. See the about page for more details. Also of interest: pageview data on analytics.vipulnaik.com, tutorial in README, request for feedback to EA Forum.

Its mission is to engage viewers in solving community problems. It provides video journalism that presents facts, history and context, while allowing interactivity and social networking. The Real News Network – with its 2 million views per month and 9 million views on YouTube – provides an opportunity to experiment with an online news-video model with a significant audience. This grant will develop an innovative platform that allows interactivity between citizens and journalists and engages its audience through the use of social media and context. We expect the platform to become a model of open-source integration of online publishing software and social networking services. It can be used by anyone who wants to tell stories with video and create a community of news consumers interested in solving community problems.|
