As she explains in the above video, Marietta [1] joined Global Voices after coming to the 2008 Global Voices Summit in Budapest [2] to cover the event as a journalist for a local newspaper. A self-described technophile, Marietta likes how Global Voices uses technology to encourage dialog between distinct communities that often don't interact. Her latest posts about the Hungarian blogosphere look at recent protests against the Hungarian Guard [3], Budapest's gay pride parade [4], a law banning nightlife after 10 p.m. in Budapest's District VI [5], and a showdown between cyclists and drivers during a Critical Mass event [6].
