Thanks to Daily Summit
We'll tell you why. Ahmad Motamedi, Iran's Minister of ICT, has been in the summit media centre, talking informally to Iranian journalists and bloggers. Farshad, editor of Gooya
and Gooya news
, challenged the Minister directly to explain why one of his websites is blocked (and is only available to Iranians via a proxy server sponsored by the US government). "We want to know what the limits are," he told the Minister. "You should tell us what causes a website to be blocked and how you make that decision." Apparently, the Minister accepted this argument and took the name of Farshad's website away with a promise to email him telling him why they had been blocked. He has said he will also provide explanations to other bloggers.
We are waiting to hear the reason.
