The world is talking; are you listening?
The title of this entry is the byline of Global Voices Online, a non-profit global citizensâ€™ media project, sponsored by and launched from the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at the Harvard Law School.
The idea for the project grew out of an international bloggersâ€™ meeting held at Harvard in December 2004. (Here is a written account of the meeting. To listen to an audio report, click here.) Global Voices, though headquartered at Harvard Law School, is a cooperative effort of contributors from every continent and dozens of countries.
One of its primary goal is to call attention to the most interesting conversations and perspectives emerging from citizensâ€™ media around the world by linking to text, audio, and video blogs and other forms of grassroots citizensâ€™ media being produced by people around the world.
I only discovered about it after I my blog got a trackback from one of the entries there. I checked out the site and searched for entries related to the Philippines.
Majority of the entries were about Philippine politics and mentioned pinoy bloggers like Jove, Connie, PCIJ, iBlog & JJ. Only two other entries were not about politics, and they both pinged my blog. I’m a bit flushed to learn that GVO regards this site as a blogworthy source for the Philippines.
