Global Voices- “The World Is Talking…Are You Listening? April 4, 2008

Posted by Amy Merrill in Uncategorized.

Rising Voices is introducing new media to techniques to those who would otherwise not be exposed (Bolivia, Morrocco, etc…). Basically helping information be distributed from those who would be unheard due to government control on the media. The site has a project where people translate over 50 languages to English to be distributed. They are now actually being funded by Reuters.

They are working with some mainstream media (NYT) and are hoping to work with Washington Post soon. They are in preliminary discussions to have aprofession news wire based on the best Global Voices stories.

Ultimately they are trying to enhance global media by reporting on global issues.
