The Tijuana Digital City Committee of the Tijuana Innovadora Movement (Comité Tijuana Ciudad Digital del Movimiento Tijuana Innovadora) in coordination with students from CETYS University's Tijuana campus put the site up. The website is an expansion of a project that started in December 2010 in Ciudad Juarez by Yesica Guerra, director of Crónicas de Héroes, part of the MIT Center for Civic Media.
