Imagine Being A Blogger in Iran

As frustrating as things often seem in Texas and in the United Sates—imagine being a blogger in Iran. A new law in Iran requires bloggers to register with the government. A BBC feature gives the reaction of some Iranian bloggers to the new law.

It’s important these things be discussed among those of us lucky enough to live in a place where freedom of expression is, as things go, allowed. No blogger is an island. Nor is any reader of blogs.

  1. This is one of the things that jump out at me when I hear someone flippantly say that we live (here in the states) in a dictatorship.

    While I’m not blinded that we have our problems here (and they are many, what can we expect when there’s humans involved?) but in light of such regulations as these, how can the comparison be drawn?
