Global Voices, Ukrainian Blogs

Here's one of the more interesting links I've found to this site, Global Voices, a Harvard Law-sponsored "guide to the most interesting conversations, information, and ideas appearing around the world." In their article today, they round up all the Ukrainian blogs, including mine in a paragraph near the bottom that is devoted to blogs dealing with "non-political" subjects.

Before the Orange Revolution, there were barely any English-language blogs anchored in Ukraine; now there's even mine, busying itself with men and women and dial-up connections. This is the growth capitalism promises: entertainment, less dreary matters than politics -- cake, as a French aristocrat once so famously put it. And I am so happy to cook it up.

If you're looking for on-the-scene reports from other countries, Global Voices apparently has it. Hadn't heard of the place before today, but a quick glance says I'll be back.
