Have you ever come across a picture or a graph that was missing the bigger picture and had no way to communicate that information to a wider audience? Fret no more, your solution may be here (along with $1,000).
Reframe It was designed to become a natural extension of the web by creating a space for you to engage the material and share your thoughts with a small community, or a large one. What the folks at Reframe It are trying to do is transform the public web by creating a virtual margin alongside any web page on which users can post comments to be shared with other users and read what others have written. By creating this space on the web, newspapers, bloggers, companies, governments, non-profits and individuals are able to hold one another accountable for the information they convey and withhold from the public.
Got it so far? Now here's the good part.
