Hi members of the Montreal NetSquared Meetup group,

I have just posted details about our next event on Facebook:

Please RSVP on Facebook as soon as possible.

Hope to see you on Tuesday.

All the best,


This Tuesday, Jeremy Clarke and Joan Razafimaharo will present their work on the Global Voices website and community.

Jeremy is one of the lead developers for the organization's websites, including,, and

Joan is the founder of Foko-Madagascar, a recipient of one of Rising Voices's international micro-grants in support of independent journalism.

Jeremy and Joan will share the challenges and accomplishments of building a global online movement using blogs, social media, and social networks.

Here's a quick description of Global Voices:

Global Voices seeks to aggregate, curate, and amplify the global conversation online - shining light on places and people other media often ignore. We work to develop tools, institutions and relationships that will help all voices, everywhere, to be heard.

With tens of millions of people blogging all over the planet, how do you avoid being overwhelmed by the information overload? How do you figure out who are the most influential or respected and credible bloggers or podcasters in any given country, especially those outside your own?

Our international team of volunteer authors, regional blogger-editors and translators are your guides to the global blogosphere.

These amazing people are bloggers who live in various countries around the world. We have invited them as contributors or hired them as editors because they understand the context and relevance of information, views, and analysis being posted every day from their countries and regions on blogs, podcasts, photo sharing sites, videoblogs - and other kinds of online citizen media. They are helping us to make sense of it all, and to highlight things that bloggers are saying which mainstream media may not be reporting.
