Thankfully, I can now introduce you to the first, Zarchka, a remarkable 19 year old student who is also quite active in several NGOs in Armenia. Her first post is the one made before this. […]

  • […] As Hetq’s investigation into homelessness winds down, I’m getting ready to make my first weekly post on the Global Voices Online site. Rebecca McKinnon has asked me to summarize the conversations taking place in the Armenian blogosphere and I of course jumped at the chance. Global Voices Online is a non-profit global citizens’ media project, sponsored by and launched from the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at the Harvard Law School. […]
