Global Voices posts

We have a new site www.g-lish.org where you can read all articles from This is Ghana in a much more organised fashion. Read Global Voices posts there.

I'm contributing to Global Voices, a brilliant new media site that, in its own words, "aggregates, curates, and amplifies the global conversation online – shining light on places and people other media often ignore." Check out the coverage on Iran.

Incidentally, one of the GV founders, Mr Ethan Zuckerman, is the excellent author of My Heart's in Accra.

I'll link my posts as they are published. Here was the first one, summarised:

"Bloggers around the world speculate about President Obama's choice to visit
Ghana first in sub-Saharan Africa. Across the continent Africans have been
asking, “Why Ghana?” Many commentators are suggesting that the choice to visit
Ghana first is an explicit endorsement of the nation's recent peaceful elections
and that the USA values peace and democracy above personal affiliations and more powerful nations."
