On August 1 I joined RuNet Echo, a Global Voices project, as a Coeditor and will now be helping the esteemed Kevin Rothrock to interpret the Russian-speaking internet for our English-language readers. I am thrilled to work with Kevin and the rest of the Global Voices team, and hope to bring you the latest about Russian internet laws, politics, protests, memes and social network gossip from the Russian-speaking part of the net. Here are some of my recent contributions:
- Vanity Military Selfies Are Spoiling Russia’s Attack in Ukraine
- Putin Is Banning a Bunch of Western Imports. Russians Fear for Their Booze.
- Want to Use Public Wi-Fi in Russia? Let’s See Some ID
RuNet Echo is also covering the developments in Eastern Ukraine, and we have an excellent series of interviews with Ukrainian bloggers, citizen journalists and active social media users, Eastern Ukraine Unfiltered, courtesy of Daniel Kennedy. Read all of these and follow other stories about the amazing world of Russian internet. Dig in!
