My new UVW! campaign starts
tonight.  Everyone who volunteers time to communicate to the rest
of the world, not merely to let their friends know about their personal
lives, or to impress everyone with the skill of their photoshop
manipulations, should at least take a peek at the GV project and see
which of their private dreams they can project onto it.

The last time I saw such a grand idea for collective interaction, it
had the flavour of one particular group trying to stamp its impressum
on the democracy of the ether.  This time, for once, it’s just a
group of people, y’know?  Of at least two genders, five major world religions, seven languages, and a dozen professions. 

See, firstly, the cleaned transcript
of the Manifesto session from last weekend’s Internet and Society
conference.  Then see the recent product of that session : the Global Voices Wiki, complete with a draft manifesto

Secondly, scour the blogosphere to see what people are saying about this new endeavour.  It’s not different from previous efforts to unite bloggers in common cause, exactly, just another persistent step along the path towards cohesive greatness.
