A Media Artist's Response To Failing Diplomacy

When BriAnna Olson's pacifist views were confronted by an adamant American couple, she decided to heed their challenge and head to Tehran-- the epicenter of the Axis of Evil nation.

Amongst a landscape of failed diplomacy and media smear campaigns, she and fellow artist Michael Pope found a society far more alive and hospitable than they'd ever been led to believe.

Like jesters of a modern-day Magellan, they've returned with stories and insights to a culture few American's have seen first hand.

Prohibited information, connections

This must be one of the more frustrating consequences of the Iranian government. 
No Facebook. 
No MySpace. 
No Craigslist.
No YouTube.
(New York Times is available, Huffington Post is not)

Blogger is definitely allowed and utilized by Iranians. 
Apparently, they have a super high number of bloggers. 

I was able to update my facebook status and post blogs via email. I love technology.
