Twitter’s getting all the type re: the Iranian election and its aftermath, but this nicely done (if substantively slight) little video (via Beautiful/Decay) produced by the Vancouver Film School makes a case for the role that blogs and bloggers have played in Iranian political dissent. Did you know that Iran is the third largest country of bloggers?
UPDATE: Just saw this via Hrag Vartanian: Interactive Persian Blogosphere Map. It that shows the different types of bloggers active in Iran and the relationships bewteen them. You can zoom in and click on different sections (poetry, reformer, secular, or cyber-shia, among others) and it will take you directly to an example of that type of blog.
