Ethan Zuckerman on Global Voices and the Web

Ethan Zuckerman is one of those rare geniuses who spends his time trying to change the world.  In addition to working as a researcher at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, Ethan has started several high-profile online initiatives to study and share news and information from across the globe.  In his recent TED Talk, Ethan shows how most of the News in the U.S. is about the U.S., with the trend showing decreasing global news over the past few decades.  This is astonishing considering that social media has exploded across the globe.  Check out Global Voices, which Ethan co-founded to share blogger news from around the world.
