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.

The Gaming world in Iran

From friend Seg:
"Not very often that Iran and the world of video games mix, but this story is somewhat perplexing in it's misinformation. So Iran says they're making a games rating board and first says they are buddying up with the North American games rating board, ESRB. The ESRB denies this and it seems they either misspoke or changed the name of their own board to the ESRA."
