Some World Posts.

    Globeandmail.com is hosting an online debate with its readers and MPs from three of the four parties (the gov't opted out).

  7. Does this mean the tide is turning?

    This Free iPod banner doesn’t want you to hit the monkey — it invites you to sound of on the war in Iraq.

  8. Wikinews shines in the face of tragedy

    The citizen journalists at Wikinews have produced an astounding amount of in-depth information about the terrorist attack on London this morning.

  14. Canadian relief sites clogged

    The Globe and Mail listed five sites accepting donations to help ease the horrors occuring as a result of the South Asian earthquake and tsunami, half are slow or not responding. Although it could be coincidental, I’d like to believe Canadians are flooding humanitarian aid sites.

  15. Normandy at 60

    Sixty years ago this weekend, thousands of soliders (including my grandfather) prepared for a massive invasion on the beaches of Normandy. The CBC’s online team imagines what its coverage would have been like had they been there. The clever project is not only a unique way to present a well-known story, but also a brillant way to tap into its archives (including a long-lost CBC recording of a broadcast by the late Katharine Hepburn)

  16. Tiananmen at 15

    Fifteen-years ago today a pro-democracy protest was brutally suppressed as the world watched in horror. Hundreds or thousands died demanding reforms that China is finally, but slowly, making

  18. Buzzing: XFN, delicious, RSS and Atom; IE accessibility toolbar; hiking gas prices; year ending

    XFN is starting to build some momentum, but I haven’t really bought into the concept for use on this site. Who knows, maybe in the next version… What I do like is proposed method — XMDP — for marking up profiles though.

  19. War coverage

    Want to know the price of lay-offs? The Globe and Mail’s Crisis in Iraq section still has a large graphic suggesting the war is still to come (it reads “Countdown to war”) and the latest news story is from March 15, 2003. Although breaking news is appearing on the homepage, what’s the point of having a special section and linking to it, if it is not being updated? At least the site is fast loading (as are most news sites).

  20. Where I stand

    A brief explanation of the editorial guidelines for this site during the war (hint: this site has always been about Web building and online journalism).

  21. View all (it might be a looong page, though)
