The world is talking. Are you listening?

That's the tagline for Global Voices, a weblog that's new to me, but which I wish I'd been reading since it started. I've been wondering for ages whether there's something I could do that in some small way might encourage more Americans to seek out and listen deeply to more people elsewhere. Blogging and the Internet are used every day to sling mud faster and over greater distances than ever before, but they're also media through which it's possible for anyone who desires to listen to ordinary people coming from very different places -- socially and culturally as well as geographically. Global Voices. I'm listening.
