  Globalized discussion.
I'm a big fan of the BBC, and they've introduced something that is pretty cool, in my opinion.

It is a section on their site called "School Day 24," and it links students, often from different countries, to discuss issues such as terrorism, religion, marriage, ethnic struggles and education. The various discussions are called "Link-ups" and often feature discussions between very different kinds of people. Several of the link-ups have already occured, but many are on the way, including a discussion between Mexican students and Hispanic students from Chicago. Prior to the "link-up," which is updated online about as quickly as it happens, readers have the ability to submit questions to the "link-up" moderator.

This is the kind of thing the information superhighway was built for, and I think the BBC understands that.
