Introducing the ‘Online Journalism Atlas’

We’re a blinkered bunch. Most of what I see in online journalism blogs tends to be about what’s happening in America, or the UK. What about the non-English speaking world? And, er, Canada? So here’s my attempt to address that: an online journalism atlas.

It’s a wiki (naturally) so that you can add information about your own country, or edit an existing entry. The structure is up to you too – if you want to write about local newspaper websites, great. Broadcasters? Fine. The blogosphere? Wonderful.

I know this blog has readers in dozens of countries, so I want to extend this invitation to you all: I’ve done enough talking – I, and I’m sure other readers, would be very very interested in what the state of play is in your neck of the woods. Broaden our minds. Correct the Anglo-American bias. Oh, and tell us what’s happening in Canada.

All contributions, however small, are more than welcomed. And I’ll be publishing excerpts on the OJB. Thanks,

    Interesting idea. My own two pennies on how to widen your media blog reading to include a more international selection of blogs: standing keyword searches on issues or companies you follow will throw up a more eclectic set of blogs. Nothing revolutionary in this, but for my own part it has made me aware of a great number of good media related blogs in various languages. They certainly exist, only wish my language skills extended to Easter European, Arabic etc
