Admittedly it may not be so easy to get a feel for what World Streets is supposed to be all about when you first check in here, since we have since 2009 published more than 1500 articles and twice that many graphics, photographs and illustrative short videos on a very large array of issues, approaches, countries and cultures.. So to open up this virtual Pandora’s box for first time readers we decided to cull about two percent of the contents of the journal to see if we could come up with a selection of diverse articles, most of them quite short, to try to give the first time reader an idea of the variety and quality of what goes on here. We invite comments, suggestions and eventual contributions to what is, above all, an open, collaborative and convergent environment.
To call up the Reader, please click the word “Reader” in the small menu to the top left under Tagged.
If you would happen to have any favorites that you would like us to add to this shortlist, please get in touch and let us know.
PS. And do you happen to recall from the ancient Greek myth what was written at the bottom of Pandora’s Box once all the spirits had flown away. One word: Hope!
