Iran: Student Web project becomes cultural campaign

A former USC student now living in Iran has turned a class project into a unique cultural effort: Inside Iran, a blog that offers a personal, small-scale look at Iranian life and society. Under the name of “Shiva the Spy” she promises to “be your eyes and ears in Iran. … You'll have a window into the social, cultural, political and historical aspects of the country. I will bring you the stuff that American media can't … or won't.”
