  • Khamenei and now Rouhani know the power of communication and
    they will be intent on restricting it. I give A LOT of credit to Iranian
    bloggers and others who have used ways to circumvent the Iranian cyberwall. They
    are taking a big risk to try and get information, pictures and video out of
    dissent and we should recognize it. I just hope that new technologies get
    developed to help blast through this wall and help fuel the kind of regime
    change Iranians deserve.
