Birmingham Coroner's Court was told how Nwaf, a student who lived in Kiln Rise, died on the A38 close to Bournville Lane Police Station on January 17 this year.
He said he saw in his rear view mirror Nwaf's car "swinging around at speed" behind him.
Another taxi driver, Ishtaq Khattak, said Nwaf overtook him at speed.
Blogs, he adds, have given the foundation a front-row seat--from a distance--into what's happening in the communities: "Our philosophy is, we don't like to interject ourselves at the community level, but blogs allow us to have a sense of what is happening across 140 or 150 communities." Each Horizons blog post is numerically keyed to one or more of a dozen goals (among them "Building knowledge and awareness around poverty" and "Building skills and mobilizing around leadership") that all Horizons communities are pursuing, allowing NWAF, its regional Horizons delivery organizations, and individual communities to track which goals are being addressed.
NWAF hired Wigley to help put blogging tools in place for the program, and to coach communities in using the Internet, both through in-person sessions and online screencasts.
An August 2008 survey from the Communications Workers of America showed that of the five states with the slowest broadband Internet in the United States, four of them--Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, and Wyoming--are in NWAF's service area.
