citizen media

Global Voices Online logoOpen Views airs at 7pm Tuesday and 7am Thursday.

Ethan Zuckerman joins me again on this week's Open Views, to talk about his current venture, Global Voices. The project is a citizen journalism initiative aimed at providing visibility into theEthan Zuckerman global blogosphere. The project is not just a blog, and it's not a repository for journalists. Instead the objective is to bring out the voices in the global community and get a sense of what issues are being discussed around the world.

Ethan Zuckerman was a guest on Open Views a few months back, as founder of GeekCorps. Since his departure from GeekCorps he has become a fellow at the Berman Center for Internet and Society, at Harvard Law School, which is where he co-founded Global Voices.
