Looking at the impact of the Internet in Iran

Life Goes on in Tehran

Blogging in Iran is huge. This is probably my most favorite blog:

Life Goes on in Tehran

Mission: To show that regardless of what any president would have you imagine, despite what any media outlet would have you believe, life goes on in Tehran and elsewhere in Iran.

I love the blog format, and the photos are beautiful.
