Adel in Syria.
IMPORTANT: I just found what I consider a gold mine filled with gold mines. It is a blog that chronicles the emerging Iraqi blogosphere. It links to an incredible amount of blogs written by Iraqis both in Iraq and in exile. They aren’t afraid to give their own thoughts but they don’t censor the voices they don’t agree with. It represents everything that is great about this new era of citizen journalism. Anyone with even a passing interest in Iraq could get lost among these links for hours. They link everyone from my old favorite Healing Iraq to HTB viewer Konfused Kid to an unabashedly sectarian blog (speaking of which, there is an interesting defense of sectarianism on that blog). Also, as a devout beer enthusiast, I was completely intrigued by this guide to drinking beer in Baghdad. Forgive me if I never post any more videos here because I’m too busy reading all these blogs….
I know a few people saw us on NBC News. Can someone post in the comments what the story was like? Here at Chat the Planet we didn’t get to see it. Also, we have been getting some press in countries all over the world. Poland, Brazil, Denmark, etc. If anyone can snap pictures of themselves holding articles about us a la me and my colleague, I’ll be sure to post them.
