The problem: ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) partnered up with GovHack and presented a dataset filled with 8500 hidden Australian stories from it’s news-cycle/archive (2009-2014). They asked “how can we make use of the neglected stories and make them relevant in today’s digital climate?” Solution: “True Stories” With the use a Chrome extension, every time you open a new tab, a new Australian story from the archive pops up into your browser's background. New tab, new story. New tab, new photo. Now, hidden stories is back into existence (again). If you like stories, photos and history, and travelling, then download the Chrome Extension. Let Australian stories come to you. PS. You be opening multiple tabs, just to check out the photos.
