The information in this wiki hasn't been maintained for a good while. Some of the projects described have since been deprecated.

In particular, the "Ushahidi Platform v3.x" section contains information that is often misleading. Many details about this version of Platform have changed since.

This website is an extraction of the original Ushahidi wiki into a static form. Because of that, functions like logging in, commenting or searching will not work.

Welcome to SwiftRiver!

SwiftRiver is a platform that helps people make sense of large amounts of information in a short amount of time. It's also a mission to democratize access to the tools used to make sense of data - to discover information that is authentic, accurate and, above all, relevant - by:

  • Gathering and filtering information from a variety of channels (RSS, Email, SMS, Twitter etc)
  • Drawing insights from the collected information
  • Allowing people to create buckets of information using their own expectations of authority and accuracy (instead of popularity).

SwiftRiver is free and open source.
