Global Voices on Omidyar Network

I just set up a request for a group on the Omidyar Network. If you haven't been there yet, give it a whirl. It's a very interesting community based on a wiki/blog system with a reputation system that is quite interesting. It's an interesting not-the-usual-members mix. Since GV is a bridging organization, I decided to try to build an outpost there and recruit members. On the other hand, it's simple for GV members to go to Omidyar Network and sign up. One easy way to navigate when you get there is to click on the names of the people who look interesting and see where they have been writing to find interesting conversations. You can add conversations to your watchlist to keep track. I'm still looking for more “sponsors” for the GV group there so if you sign up or already have an account, please join the sponsorship group. The URL is http://www.omidyar.net/group/globalvoices/

The top page URL for the Omidyar Network is: http://www.omidyar.net/home/

UPDATE: We just got enough sponsors so the group is not set up. Come join us and help build the bridge.

UPDATE 2: There is a group on Omidyar Network call Better World Media which seems to have a lot of overlap with our interests.
