new nordic citizen journalism site: inorden.org

Kristine Lowe notes the appearance of a newly launched Nordic citizen journalism site, iNorden.org. Given the similarities of the Scandinavian languages (think the difference between a Scottish brogue, a Texan drawl and Cockney and you’ll have the idea: we can all understand each other with a little effort) it’s really quite strange that the Norwegian, Swedish and Danish “webs” are so disconnected. I suppose it’s habit, born of the past centuries of war, occupation and competition – we’ve only been friends for a hundred or so years, really.

Anyway, it’ll be interesting to follow this site and see how it develops. Seems like a great idea.
