- Do you know what I use TrekEarth for? I get my daily news of the world here.
Shouldn't I watch CNN or BBC or the local TV station, instead? Heck, no.
To explain why, let's look at today's headlines on CNN (although any news outlet would do). "South Dakota Congressman had fatal crash . Whale leaped aboard sailing boat in Australia. Twin-engine plane crashed in Clearwater, Florida." Is this what the world really looks like?
If you walk out the door, you don't see Florida twin-engine planes falling out of the sky, whales jumping onto sailboats and Congressmen slamming into trees at every step. (Even though the latter would be pretty enticing.) The real world shows through the eyes of thousands of photographers who snap what they see and post it on TrekEarth. Commuters drive to work in Ohio. A kid looks out a train window in India. Greek firshermen bring in the catch. There's your everyday global reality, photographed with no hidden agenda, editorial bias or push to sensationalize. TrekEarth is the closest thing to being omnipresent that doesn't involve getting nailed to a cross-shaped board. Keep up the good work!
