ABSTRACT
The article presents information on Iranian weblogs where citizens of Iran dare to speak their minds. Iranians generally use pseudonyms to discuss taboo topics and criticize the government in a way no other news outlet allows. Even some high-profile politicians have joined in, such as President Muhammad Khatami's former Vice President, Mohammed Abtahi, who offers candid insights into the Iranian government on his blog, accompanied by photographs taken with his cell phone.
