Got encouraged to attend the Global Voices Summit at Delhi – thanks to Dina.
Some excerpts from the GV SUMMIT DELHI page:
The Global Voices Summit, on December 16th, will be our annual opportunity to take stock, come together and explore our central question: How can we use the Internet to build a more democratic, participatory global discourse? How can we create a more inclusive conversation about what is happening on our planet, and how human beings in different parts of the world are impacting each other in countless ways we don’t realize every day?
This year we also hope to address two further questions:
- How do we bring more unheard, ignored, or disadvantaged voices into the global online conversation?
- How do we help people speak and be heard – even when powerful people try to stop them from doing so?
WHO: Global Voices editors, contributors, community members, interested bloggers and journalists. Basically, anybody who is interested in what it means for media, geopolitics, and global society when the whole world starts talking online. Click here to see who is already committed to attend.
WHEN: 9am-5:30pm IST, Saturday December 16th, 2006
(A smaller private planning meeting will be held for GV editors and authors only on Sunday the 17th.)
