  6. What Do you want people to know about Piracy;-
    We Want people to know, that Pirates aren't all good as they can be in the movies, like: Pirates of the carabian, and that they can be completely different, also, the fact that they do this for surrvival, and honestly they dont have a lot of choice, since they do this because their country is at civial war, and they are in the midle of it,- so they are poor.

    What issues need to be considered when producing ingormation to share on the internet?;-
    You need evidence to back you up, about how and why they are doing this. Also, you may not know exactly when or where you will come across them, as they can look like avrage any day person would.
    which would make this harder to tell if they where, the only real way to catch them out, would be if you saw them on a boat with goods, heavily armed.

    How could the information be presented while maintaining the geographical information?:-
    In powerpoint, with a map, to show where it goes, and where it is likely to be taken over by samiali pirates- what its carrying the size of teh crew, and how to approach taking over the ship that the samilia pirates are on (:

  7. 1. That they are not bloodthirsty swashbuckling pirates, they are poor desperate young men who need money for food, shelter and clothing. They don't intend to kill , they just want to live a normal life.

    1) I want to re-educate people that pirates are real people and not just characters in a film. We are linked to modern day piracy because of trade. Pirates do not look like the typical stereo type pirates if you saw one walking down the road you wouldn't think they were a pirates!
    2) Copyrighted pictures and information.
    3) Powerpoints with annotated pictures, maps and visual presentations.
