The (virtual) life of a regional editor

Sitting here in virtual space has its disadvantages. Since starting at Global Voices I've been attempting to get to know my new colleagues, specifically the regional blogger-editors.

There are potted biographies with lovely pictures which come with a complete archive of their writing attached. All useful information, but it lacks the human touch.

Since we're all often near computers there are other methods of interaction, of course. Instant messaging is possible when time zones mean we're awake at the same hour. E-mails cover the night divide.

Then I discovered from her blog that our south Asia editor, Neha Viswanathan had been invited by blogger Kamla Bhatt to be a guest on her regular podcast The Kamla Bhatt Show. You can listen to, or download, the podcast Podcast: Kamla Bhatt talks to Neha Viswanathan

    I happened to see this typo. A serious one that too.

    I started blogging in 2003 and it is as a blogger that I joined Gloval Voices Online as managing editor in 2006.
