Welcome To The New BrooWaha

By Ariel, published on Nov 9, 2009

When I wrote the first line of code of BrooWaha about 3 years ago, I never expected this project to become what it is today. As a graduate student at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, I was merely looking for a side project to apply what I had learned in school for the past 6 years and design my first website from scratch.

About a year after the launch, it became evident that the project had become more than a nerd's toy and needed more attention than I could give it in order to grow. David Cohn joined me in the adventure at this time and brought with him his experience in journalism and new... (more)

Interview With David Cohn, BrooWaha's New Chief-Editor,

By Ariel, published on Jan 6, 2008

Who are you?My name is David Cohn, but I often go by the alias Digidave. I often joke that I am a jack of all trades and a master of none. I grew up in Los Angeles and did my undergrad at UC Berkeley. After living in SF for a bit and working at Wired magazine, I moved to New York to continue perusing journalism and to work towards my masters degree at Columbia's J-school. And now I'm back in the bay area. I'm lucky in that I've found a way to work on projects, like Broowaha, that I love. I try to be as much of an open book as possible on my blog. How did you hear about BrooWaha?I first heard... (more)

Idan Raichel at UCLA on November 15th

By Ariel, published on Nov 5, 2007

He was intrigued by the tapes of traditional Ethiopian music that some of the children played, realizing that, although thousands of Ethiopians immigrated to Israel,... (more)
