When Was The Last Time You Linked Outside the US?
In Hoder’s session on Building a Blogosphere, Rebecca MacKinnon asked “what can we do to encourage people to link to bloggers internationally?”
Thats been sort of a theme today. I think its challenging, because often bloggers in different places have very different orientations; that combination of cultural, educational, and training background that acts as a lens on everything we see.
But I’ll ask: When was the last time you linked to a blogger whose first language isn’t English? (Mine was April 17th, on Lebanese Democracy.) In review, it seems that my comments on the world at large rarely engage the primary sources that are available.
