[globaloutlookDH-l] Websites for following technology and the humanities outside of Europe, Canada, U.S.?

Hi all,

I've recently started trying to expand my daily reading (and tweeting) 
about education, the humanities, and technology in a more regular fashion.

Currently, most things I check on a daily or weekly basis are focussed 
on Canada, the U.S., or Europe--in fact primarily the UK (NYTimes, 
Guardian, Washington Post, Chronicle of Higher Education, Inside Higher 
Education, Slate, Salon, the Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, National 
Post, Economist).

I've recently added Scidev.net and the Times of India to my daily scan.

Does anybody have any other suggestions for useful news-sites to include 
in my daily or weekly read? I'm particularly interested in places that 
are good on news about higher education, technology, and the 
intersection of higher education, university research, and technology 
outside of Canada, the U.S., and the U.K.

I can read and/or pick my way through a number of different European 
languages (Dutch, French, German, Spanish, Italian--with things getting 
worse as you move from left to right). At the same time, however, since 
part of my goal is to tweet these to an international audience, things 
with an English version will be particularly useful. (I'm trying to 
think of ways of sharing non-English language news 
internationally--perhaps through a Google Translate URL?)

Any ideas or suggestions? Or criticism of the idea--I can see the 
emphasis on English being an issue of self-replicating biases.
