Thanks to @ethan (Ethan Zuckerman) for link to this editorial in the Stabroek News, a paper in Guyana (a nation on the northern coast of South America): “Elsewhere Communities.” An impressively literary editorial, but I’m not sure there’s an argument that holds – or even an argument being made. Kenner was talking about imagination, and transformational creativity, not just about talking to people who are different from us. That’s important, too, and Global Voices is trying to do something worthwhile, but it isn’t about the Elsewhere Community, but about bringing the Everywhere Community together, to bridge divides and understand other perspectives. Or so it seems to me.
