Make History [national911memorial.org] is a collection of stories, videos, and photos submitted by people who experienced 9/11. Developed by interactive media firm Local Projects, the website visualizes user-generated 9/11 stories temporally, geographically and by overlaying Google Streetview images. The images create a "double-vision" contrast between the intensity of the past, and the banality of the present. An interactive timeline and geographical map allows users to explore how the attack impacted its environment over the time of the day.

The Make History website accompanies an international call for submissions to build the National September 11 Memorial Museum from the ground up. It claims to be the first of its kind to endorse and use the citizen journalism technique on this scale.

Looks like an amazing site. I read just one of the accounts of someone on a different airplane that morning, and even 8 years later, living in Canada, it has an impact.
