    I recently enjoyed reading your article from a few years back:
    “Using the Internet to Examine Patterns of Foreign Coverage.” Nieman Reports, 2004.

    In that article, you mention that you would continue tracking the patterns you discuss in the article.
    Did you ever publish additional findings on your blog or elsewhere? If so, could you please direct me to the source?

    I learned about you from your 2010 TED talk, and used that video in some media classes I taught at Ohio State while working on my PhD, which I finished last May. I just finished ‘Rewire’ and highly recommend it to anyone interested in new media or global communication. It is truly outstanding and forward thinking. I look forward to your follow-up work with Global Voices and will celebrate the day when language is genuinely transparent. Hope to meet and perhaps work with you some day.
