Odds & Ends

by Nathan Hamm on 8/11/2006

The Boston Globe has a nice story on Global Voices Online (where I am editor for Central Asia and the Caucasus). I was interviewed for the story and really hoped that blogs from Central Asia and the Caucasus would get some attention in the final product. Oh well. Blame it in part on my inability to offer up any pithy comments. Plus, Central Asia is still terra incognita to most editors. The author of the article is an intern and she did a good job.

BBC’s Uzbek service likes me though. (More on that a bit later.)

Finally, I think I’ve sorted out most of the problems with the site’s layout. I didn’t know until this morning that comments were not working, so if you tried to leave any feedback on yesterday’s post regarding the site’s problems or anything else, it should work now. Also, I’ve actually remembered to check the site in IE, Firefox, and Safari and it looks like it works fairly well (aside from a minor issue with photos in IE). The only thing that I can’t seem to figure is why the text of posts sometimes does not appear. That doesn’t seem to be happening today. (*knock on wood*) But, if anyone sees any problems or has any features that they would like me to add, let me know.

Also, I’m sure there are dead or changed links. Let me know if I’ve got yours screwed up. Or, if you have a relevant blog or website you think I should add, notify me.
