The Pub's voice is now Global!

Global Voices: The World is Talking, Are You Listening?
I am now a volunteer author of the Global Voices Online, you can read my debut article on my page there.

What the hell is Global Voices? Let's check it out:

Global Voices is a community of more than 200 bloggers around the world who work together to bring you translations and reports from blogs and citizen media everywhere, with emphasis on voices that are not ordinarily heard in international mainstream media. Extracted from: http://globalvoicesonline.org/about/

They "advocate for freedom of expression around the world and protect the rights of citizen journalists to report on events and opinions without fear of censorship or persecution". We certainly need that in Hong Kong now. We yet to know what will happen with this review of the Control of Obscene and Indecent Articles Ordinance (COIAO); I smelled shit really. I am waiting for updates from that shit and am prepared to kick some asses here. Now, I can do that in GVO, too, I hope.

So if you read lots of blogs and are interested in reporting and translating those blogs entries into English for the global readership, drop Oiwan Lam a message.
