Kyle across America: citizen reporter tracks the recession on $25/day

The Uptake, one of YouTube's finest citizen reporting organizations who helped us launch the YouTube Reporters' Center last week with this great video, has started a new project with a University of Minnesota grad student named Kyle Potter.

Learn more in this promo video from the Uptake (hats off to Chuck Olsen for the excellent voice-over):
