Bangladesh: On the Bangladeshi Blogosphere

An article in publication, Slate on the Bangladeshi Blogosphere. “While by vocation Ahmede is a journalist, there is a growing band of bloggers who are bypassing the mainstream media in favour of their own to take up reporting of news or opinion analysis, via their blogs. These Citizen Journalists, springing up all around the world, are transforming the view of blogging from a simple tool of personal expression into a potent source of un-reported and under-reported news.”


  • Well, a blog is a different form of freedom of expression. The expression to voice opinions or just random facts. I do agree that many take it on thier own liberty to report biased information or information that is incorrect. But the deal with the internet is…once something goes in…it pretty much stays there forever. I don’t know if there is much to do except advertise against reporting false information or news…but it could all just end up being a misunderstanding or miscomprehension. The very idea of misinterpretation is one reason people actually start blogs. However, despite my confusing statements. I do agree with SLate on the Bangladeshi Blogosphere.

  • Neha, Thanks a lot. i will be updating the stadium project as days passes by.
