Talk about free media entrepreneur

Watch one man’s determination to bring news to his people, even if they can’t afford to buy a newspaper or connect to the internet.

Alfred Sirleaf’s ‘Daily Talk’ newspaper reaches thousands of Liberians every day but only ever produces one copy. How does he do it? By writing the day’s biggest stories on a large blackboard beside a busy road in the capital.

About

We’re two twenty-somethings who joined the real world armed with diplomas worth a combined half million dollars from Middlebury College—only to find out that we didn’t have a clue. No one prepared us for the inflexibility of the whole workplace set-up. No one warned us that the Mommies were at War, or that employers still assumed men were okay seeing their kids every other week, or that the U.S. doesn’t guarantee paid parental leave, vacation, or sick leave. The current work-life model isn’t working. Let’s talk about it.

In 2007, we started a non-profit called The Lattice Group, which aims to bring awareness about work-life issues to young people, so if you can’t get enough of our musings on True/Slant check out http://thelatticegroup.org.
