Today marks my first day as Global Voices RuNet Echo Project Editor. My inaugural post went live this morning: a report on an online petition that emerged last week advocating expanded controls on foreign-funded Russian NGOs. You can read it here at GV’s site.
‘A Good Treaty’ has been my primary blogging platform for more than two years now. As of today, that is no longer the case. For the most part, my research will now appear at Global Voices. (I’ll continue to repost my GV reports to AGT, as well as my New Books Network interviews.) To the readers who have stuck with this blog since I started it back in 2010, I extend my warm thanks!
While my research-based reportage is relocating to RuNet Echo, AGT is by no means kaput! In the coming weeks, I’ll be exploring new styles and modi operandi for the blog, and I welcome any constructive feedback. Is there any type of blogging that you’d like to see implemented in the ‘new’ AGT? As my future work at GV is dedicated to monitoring the Russian Internet (mainly the RuNet blogosphere), I am considering returning AGT to its original emphasis on U.S.-Russian relations.
That’s just one idea, anyway! I’m inclined to restore AGT to a more personal voice, so in that spirit please feel free to transmit your thoughts, either in the comments or by email.
Many thanks again,
