The Economist · August, 2010

Thanks to a special arrangement, Global Voices authors from around the world now occasionally submit articles to The Economist's Babbage blog about technology. These articles differ from typical Global Voices posts in that they are usually more sharply analytical and do not reference as broad a range of citizen media. Also, according to a longstanding Economist tradition, the author is not named. All stories are reviewed and published by an Economist editor and are republished on Global Voices soon after. See all articles here.
