  • I am subscribed to GlobalVoice’s newsfeed for Cuba, and of the last 25 posts that are still on the history of my feed reader, 14 are from the same blog from Luis M. García.

    I would like to see more diversity of sources in the blog. Maybe there are not many choices here, but in any case, linking to and talking about almost any post in this blog is not worth reading. If I wanted to see everything posted by Luis M. Garcia, I would be subscribed to his blog (which I am), not to Global Voices’.
