Last night, TED's Chris Anderson awarded a Special Achievement (RED) Webby Award to Ushahidi, the Nairobi-based crowd-sourcing start-up. He presented it to co-founder David Kobia.

In November in Monaco, we spoke with co-founder Ory Okolloh, a South African, Harvard-trained lawyer. Okolloh was at the Monaco Media Forum, where Ushahidi received the Monaco Media Prize from Prince Albert.

We are republishing our interview today.
