    Dear Bettina,
    I understand your concerns. We have to remember WSF´s methodology. Sergio´s proposal is similar to the section "Testemunhos/Temoignages" - people´s live memory.
    Once I asked Rita about all Foruns´s websites. we need to build a site map with informations about what happened around the world like 2008´s Global Day. We have missed a lot of these information...We´ll need an external hard disk (or more) to put all these avaiable information. The oficial website doesn´t have all these data.
    One main issue is to think this map to go further with our proposal for memory archive.
    In solidarity,
