A revolution is brewing

A fascinating list - courtesy of Committee to Protect Bloggers - of bloggers who have run foul of state power. Democratic and autocratic states are increasingly aware, and fearful of, unfiltered and non-corporate information. We should be proud and vigilant.

In a perverse way, it is - well, not good - but gives a sliver of hope to see a relatively large number of Iranian bloggers on the list. It at least indicates there are struggles occurring at the grass-roots level against the intellectual repression of the corrupt mullahs.

Yes I support the Committee's aims.

The ease with which security agencies can:
- record posts/comments on blogs,
- record bloggers real identities and exact locations, and
- then assemble easily retrievable lists/biographies of bloggers;

must be countered by an international blogger movement that sticks together.
