Welcome to GlobalHome.com!
News is "super local" everywhere...
"Super Local News" is a way, through a concept we call "participatory publishing", of keeping in touch with issues and people from the other side of the globe and from right around the corner.
At GlobalHome.com we are intent on building a portal to these participatory publishing environments that are created around local stories and super local stories of a global interest. So that a story from India, Japan, Russia, USA or anywhere that has been brought online by a local journalist can be found, reacted to and contributed to by people from around the globe.
Global news is local everywhere...
On our inter-related planet all news is global no matter where it originates from. We will work to bring you local news with global impact in a way that you can contribute to it. Contributing to this news stream will help open up the discussion and the possible solutions relating to the news story. We must become creators in common and seek to shape the world as it shapes our lives.
Mission Statement: FranÁais | Deutsch | L'italiano | PortuguÍs | EspaŇol
We are all contributors in common to this world. Every day through technology and personal contact we become even more intertwined and interdependent. At GlobalHome.com we call this process of socialization and capitalization of the planet "Globalism".
The globe is our home and we should all be interested in keeping the people, animals and the environment of our home safe and healthy. To do that we must first be informed, and second we must contribute and thirdly we must act appropriately to form solutions.

How do we make money:
Right now we don't unless you donate! We are testing the TRUE INTERNET MODEL - "If it is of worth people will support it." That "support" usually translates to scores of advertising banners... BUT "SUPPORT" TO US means a donation-based business model (crazy huh)... With the incentive that if you donate we'll keep the site BANNER FREE! Isn't that worth a dollar! [DONATE]
PS: What do those globes mean?
We rank our guide entries by the globe... with four globes for outstanding... Please visit our guide to building personalizable (our new web word...) and/or participatory web resources and send us your comments for consideration and we'll add it to the guide page...
