Connecting Persian Blogs To The World

Filed under: Uncategorized — soundsiranian @ 12:42 am

Kamangir is speaking. I have been recently thinking how to facilitate the connection between Persian blogs and the English-speaking audience. Besides the fantastic job Farid is doing in GVO, I thought I will try to translate outstanding Persian posts that I find. Until now, that would be two posts about the recent elections; “Iranian Elections, Or ‘King Akbar returns’” and “What’s Next for Ahmadinejad? More Populism, Or More Fundamentalism“. Any idea or suggestion?

  1. Hi Kamangir,

    Excellent idea. I think the more ‘crossover’ from one blog-language to another the better.

    Any posts on how blogging is affecting the political process, and/or how blogs are changing the way Iranians are going about accessing information, and forming their opinions, would be valuable.

  6. I want to know what is really happening in Iran among the young people. Do they want to continue to live under the current regime? How open are these Persian bloggers?? I understand that there have been thousands of arrests by the ‘morality police’ recently. Why don’t the people go into the streets – like they are doing in Venezuela – to protest this???
