Global Voices

Global Voices is an fascinating “web community” that is supported by more than 300 bloggers and translators around the world who work together to bring you reports from blogs and citizen media everywhere. This web community emphasizes on voices that are not ordinarily heard in international mainstream media.

By being able to “aggregate, curate, and amplify the global conversation online” this website highlights places and people other media often ignore — and that is often the indigenous peoples hidden from the mainstream colonial mainstream society (and their accompanying media).  This website portal is an example of the web 2.0 technologies afforded to us, which allow literally mllions of people around the world who are blogging, podcasting, and uploading photos, videos, and information across the globe.    Amazingly, this team of volunteer authors and part-time editors are active participants in the blogospheres they write about on Global Voices that work as a virtual community across multiple time zones.

This is an example of citizen journalism.  But more importantly, it is about giving voice to where none is given.
