New online resources for the well informed

I would like to call your attention to a new online magazine, Democracy, and a new blog, PostGlobal.

Democracy just launched yesterday. It is edited by Kenneth Baer and Andrei Cherny who saw the need for a place for progressive ideas to be presented and debated. As Baer puts it,

So, despondent after another Election Day, Andrei and I decided that as progressives begin to rebuild their infrastructure, that a key part of that needed to be a journal of ideas, where these big ideas can be floated and debated – in our pages, in other’s pages, and importantly in the growing blogosphere. The lesson of the conservatives was clear: these journals – while small in readership – have an outsized impact on the overall movement.

PostGlobal is a blog of the Washington Post started about a week ago. It poses questions regarding global issues at least twice a week and solicits responses from experts and journalists from around the world plus an extra “Editor’s Box” for assessment on late breaking stories. It is managed by writers David Ignatius and Fareed Zakaria.

You will be able to find links for both of these in the right-hand column.
