I learned more about the amazing Global Voices Online at San Francisco Wordcamp on Saturday. They have contacts in countries worldwide that scan bloggers in their country looking for new and important news. Such news gets posted to Global Voices by country, subject, and author and is translated into English, if needed. They also have a number of sites in other languages. The site is exceptionally easy to navigate, with the ability to look up stories in any number of ways.
Most importantly, you’ll find a wealth of news and views on Global Voices not easily found elsewhere. Real journalism by real people living in the area. Check it out.
