‘Blogging For a Cause’: GV Advocacy protects free speech online
Zemanta – a new add-on blogging and email tool that automatically suggests tags, links, photos, related articles, and more, in real time, while you type a post or send email – has issued a competition in order to encourage blogging for charitable causes. The five blogs to get the most votes will each win a prize of $3,000. The deadline is JUNE 6, 2009.
My vote goes to Global Voices Advocacy, because especially today that the Internet has passed the one billion users and more and more users live outside the Western world (China has a 17.8% share, United States 16.2%, Japan 6.0%, etc.) it’s essential to defend, monitor and foster free speech online in those countries. And Global Voices Advocacy keeps track of online censorship worldwide in daily posts, maintains a map of web 2.0 censorship and supports other related projects. For example, these days they talk about Electric torture in web addiction clinics used in China and the new sites being blocked in Bahrain.
This blog post is part of Zemanta’s “Blogging For a Cause” (http://www.zemanta.com/bloggingforacause/) campaign to raise awareness and funds for worthy causes that bloggers care about.
