Haji Agha kicks it off by talking about the Internet’s effect on society, particularly the democratizing nature of it in Iran… this is the first Iranian blogger/web guru gathering of its kind here in the United States.
The first part of this program will be about bloggers, the second about Balatarin, and the third about Iranian.com. We’ll also have a video conference with Lady Sun (Khorshid Khanoom).
Now Omid Memarian… he’s introducing himself and says that generally journalists/reporters don’t give blogging and bloggers a lot of credit. They don’t see it as first-class work. But if we look at blogs in America now, some of the most important newspapers and companies are engaging in blogs. Second, there’s the question of business and blogging. Journalists are moving from the newsroom to blogs. He’s now introducing various bloggers… and check the individual posts to follow for that.
