dotcom [2]DOTCOM, a program implemented by PH International [3] and sponsored by the US Department of State, is an online initiative using blogs and video to bring American, Armenian and Azerbaijani teenagers together [4] to work on creating socially conscious media.

With the ongoing conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed territory of Nagorno Karabakh understandably creating some problems, especially when ten teenagers from each of the two countries met up with their American counterparts [5] in the U.S. last month, Program Director Elizabeth Métraux speaks candidly about some of the challenges experienced so far as well as some of the program's successes.

DOTCOM has a web site at http://dotcom.ph-int.org [6] and a portal to many of the DOTCOM participant blogs at http://www.netvibes.com/phdotcom#DOTCOM-Home_Page [7] while the interview with Elizabeth Métraux, who also blogs on the project at http://dotcomelizabeth.blogspot.com [8], can be heard below.
