Global Voices Citizen Media Summit

The Global Voices Citizen Media Summit began in Budapest, Hungary yesterday and continues today. Summit presentations are broadcasted live here. Liveblogging of sessions by GV-authors can be found here. You can also follow it on twitter here and the program for the summit here.

From the Egyptian blogosphere, Alaa abd al Fatah, Wael Abbas and Elijah Zarwan are attending the Budapest summit. Liz Henry at blog her has more on Alaá´s presentation, especially on the segment on Noha Atef of al Tatheeb fi Masr(Torture in Egypt).

Global Voices means a lot to me, and httpi was introduced to it by a media scholar friend of mine, very early on. It´s very very close to my heart, and it´s been a very close friend to the Egyptian blogosphere during both rough and joyeous times in the recent past.

Here are some photos from the event by Elijah, Rebecca, and Neha.

Ethan , Rebecca, Sami, Solana, Amira and everybody else at GV, hope that all of you will have a very productive and successful summit!
