Topic - Wesley Grubbs
A technology worker with Pitch Interactive is using his computer skills to make a political point, with the creation of an interactive graph that shows the kills in Pakistan due to U.S. drones.
"We want to shock people," Wesley Grubbs said, in Raw Story. "What we tried to do though with this was not just shock people with the number of casualties, but to shock people with the amount of information that we really don't know."
"The topic itself became very interesting to us because we are lead to believe these drone strikes that we are doing in Pakistan and elsewhere in the world have this sort of laser precision and we're only getting the bad guys," Mr. Grubbs said, in Raw Story. "Once we actually started researching this topic we realized that is not quite the case."
