Country Boyi wonders what would happen if Ugandans blogged in local languages. All of the Ugandan blogs I've found so far have been in English — why is that? Is there a whole sector of the blogren I'm missing?
Owera responds to recent controversy over whether or not bloggers are afforded the same legal protection as journalists: "I am not a journalist. I am a blogger. I blog. I run an online diary. Period." (Particularly interesting is the AP article he quotes, in which a blogger is defined as "some hack who offers half-baked commentary on the news of the day.")
The news is already out, but I'm taking over from Josh as the Global Voices Uganda Author. My first post, "Self-reflection and the search for meaning in the Ugandan blogosphere," was published on May 17, and you can keep track of my biweekly blogren roundups here.
