Blogs you can hear from faraway

6 April 2005

Blogs link to blogs link to blogs. There is a perpetual conversation taking place, but very little of it crosses cultural or even geographic boundaries. A new Global voices blog systematically highlights the really good stuff from far away (like Afghanistan, Malaysia, Kenya, Iraq).

Clark Boyd from the BBC spent the day with Global Voices. The co-founder, Ethan Zuckerman from Berkman Center for Internet & Society says: "It's our sincere hope that by attaching people and stories to issues and countries, we're going to have a real impact as far as getting people interested in stories that otherwise they may not pay attention to".
