Spirit of America is launching a new service that will provide easy-to-use blogging tools translated into Arabic, along with free hosting. It’s the first in a series of projects they say they want to do to open the doors to democracy in Iraq and elsewhere, by allowing average men and women to be heard.
It’s a great project, and we’re proud to be a part of a friendly competition among blogs to raise the funds to support it.
Tim Oren and I have both talked a lot about the impacts of citizen’s media. Let’s promote some citizen’s media that builds freedom by letting Iraqis have their own voices.
