Sorry for my comparative silence, friends. We’re alive and running at the Global Voices 2008 summit here in Budapest. There’s a hotel conference room packed with Global Voices authors and activists as well as with journalists from around Hungary and throughout Central Europe. And there are dozens of folks covering the event via liveblogging and other methods – you can see their coverage on the summit website.
Not me, though. I’d love to liveblog, but there’s a great deal going on here, and I’m going to be busy as one of the master of ceremonies.
We’re thrilled that people are paying attention to the work we’re doing at Global Voices and our involvement via Global Voices Advocacy in issues around free speech online. My friend Evgeny Morozov has an article in this week’s Economist on the cat and mouse game around free speech online – we’re thrilled to be mentioned in that context.
More news as I’m able to break away from the conference and share the conversation with you. Wish us luck!
