What is BlueWorld.org?
BlueWorld.org is a world geography web site for people who want to know more about the regions and countries that make up our world. It was designed to help researchers, students, and laypersons find news and information about the nations of the world quickly and easily.
Why was it created?
From the beginning, we felt that many people, Americans especially, know very little about the other countries and peoples of the world. Here at BlueWorld, we think the world is a fascinating place, and the many diverse people and customs of the world are endlessly interesting and inspiring. With this site, we hoped to help English-speaking people become more informed about the rest of the world.
Through the use of news feeds, we also hope to afford people the opportunity to learn about current events in each country around the world, and how the various countries interrelate and interact.
What were your goals?
Our goal, since we were and continue to be an unfunded project, was to provide the best quality information for people at the lowest possible cost. By using open source software, free xml news services, and public domain data and images from the CIA (i.e., the World Factbook), we were able to achieve this goal.
The site was originally founded in the very early 21st century. It is in the process of being completely updated at this time, and although we’re not we’re not finished yet, it’s back!
We hope you find it useful.
