Ethan Zuckerman has been dedicated to the creation of online spaces for dialogue since his work in the founding of Tripod, one of the pioneering web communities. In 2000, he founded Geekcorps, a non-profit technology volunteer corps, which pairs skilled volunteers from US and European high tech companies with businesses in emerging nations. Since 2003, he has been a fellow of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School. He is also the cofounder (with Rebecca MacKinnon) of Global Voices Online, a non-profit global citizens’ media project, based upon an international network of bloggers.
Ethan talks with us about how different voices from all over the globe are coming together online around common themes and goals.
