Hello world! Our Very First Post online! :)

Welcome to This is your first post….

Today on Canada’s Remembrance Day 2008… AHA Media is born on WordPress today!

We at AHA MEDIA have never done this before – going online on our very own site that is ! 🙂

We’re a group of Downtown Eastside residents that have been learning about technology from the Fearless City Mobile Project. We are trying to bridge the digital divide!

We were inspired to  form a little group of media makers called AHA MEDIA and we hope to continue doing:

Mobile media production,

Social media event reporting,

Citizen journalism

Project documenation/Archiving

We want to become an active supporting member of all our communities with our new media handheld devices especially with Nokia cameraphones.

We want to give an alternative focus to media representation of the Vancouver Downtown Eastside – we at AHA MEDIA live and work in this area and we hope this site will be a news resource for people to see and hear about us.

We will include personal stories from neighborhood residents and our community engagement/outreach about our growing and changing area to the rest of the world – both online and offline 🙂

Through this site, AHA MEDIA is learning to use social media to help our neighborhood’s social justice, housing and economic issues.

We are excited about learning, growing and working with everyone! 🙂

Thank you very much for your support
