The Boston Globe reports on Iran’s bloggers:

Most estimates put the number of active blogs in Iran at 70,000 to 100,000, and growing fast.

Iran has a long tradition of controlling the airwaves and the print media, banning papers and jailing journalists who criticize official policies.

But Iran’s online activists have proved harder to quash. They have used fast-changing Web addresses, proxy sites, and other technological tricks to get around the restrictions.

“They block us and we evade the blocks,” Samiei said. “It goes on every day. They code, we decode.”
