Weekend update: Other things found this week:
Best wishes to all my readers (I know there are a few of you, at least) for a happy and safe new year.
Possibly the best wish we all could have this year is this one of Joi Ito's, for the Global Voices Covenant to become our standard for free communication:
    We believe in the power of direct connection. The bond between individuals from different worlds is personal, political and powerful. We believe conversation across boundaries is essential to a future that is free, fair, prosperous and sustainable - for all citizens of this planet.

There's also a Global Voices Blog.
