06/24/2003 Archived Entry: "Iranian bloggers"

A fascinating article from Christian Science Monitor entitled "Proliferating Iranian weblogs give voice to taboo topics." It begins, "In a recent entry, LadySun - the handle used by a feisty online diarist - takes aim at the strict dress code for women, grumbling about a guard who wouldn't let her into a hotel, "cuz I wasn't wearing socks!!'" Another Iranian blogger's link is also provided. Apparently, these blogs are being used by major news sources as windows into the rather closed Iranian society and some candid reaction to events such as the student protests.
