<nettime-ann> [ann] Handbook for Bloggers and Cyber-dissidents

A new publication from 'Reporters Without Borders' entitled 'Handbook 
for Bloggers and Cyber-dissidents' is perhaps interesting.  Available 
in a number of languages.

" Blogs get people excited. Or else they disturb and worry them. Some 
people distrust them. Others see them as the vanguard of a new 
information revolution. Because they allow and encourage ordinary 
people to speak up, they're tremendous tools of freedom of expression.
Bloggers are often the only real journalists in countries where the 
mainstream media is censored or under pressure. Only they provide 
independent news, at the risk of displeasing the government and 
sometimes courting arrest.
Reporters Without Borders has produced this handbook to help them, 
with handy tips and technical advice on how to to remain anonymous 
and to get round censorship, by choosing the most suitable method for 
each situation. It also explains how to set up and make the most of a 
blog, to publicise it (getting it picked up efficiently by 
search-engines) and to establish its credibility through observing 
basic ethical and journalistic principles."
