An interactive guide to California's propositions

Gimme Props: An Interactive Guide to California’s Propositions

on November 4, 2012

What is Gimme Props!? The simplest answer is an experiment.

Seven students at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism were frustrated with the way that propositions are usually covered — so they decided to try something new. Their mission: to take dry material and explain it in an interactive, lighthearted way,  broadening the audience that learns about these important ballot measures. Gimme Props! uses data visualization, quizzes, games, and interactives to present this information in a way that is compatible with a younger generation that digests media in a different fashion. Let us know what you think!

The Gimme Props project was created by  John Osborn, C.K. Hickey, Brittany Schell, Evelyn Xiaoqing Pi, Erik Reyna, Christy Khoshaba and Stacey Kennelly.

    This is an interesting site. However, you have failed to follow the money in regards to Prop 30 and 32. A single billionaire named Charles Munger (Molly’s brother) has put out over $100 million of his own (inherited) money to defeat prop 30 and promote prop 32. He is exactly the kind of person who would benefit from passage of 32, i.e., a billionaire with political ambitions. His kind of politics are clearly undemocratic, and should be defeated.
