Iran round-up -
a long day, dominated by Iran and with lots more posting to come.
In a nutshell, we went to President Khatami's news conference
, asked about Iran online
, internet censorship
, and find out what he knows about blogs
Then we interviewed
Iran's information minister.
Also - you can watch the press conference with Iran's President here
- where you'll see the Daily Summit put your questions to Mr Khatami, just as we promised
. And you can read a series of posts
in Arabic too.
The only qestion asked by your reporter was if the President has a weblog, or if he reads his deputies` and/or his daughters` weblogs!!!And that after the whole fuss you made about the censorship in Iran!!!That`s what our people get from trusting the Brits! Our fathers had told us not to, we were too naive to listen to them.
@Abdi, I don't know about trust/not trust to British, and I don't care about it. But there were three reporters from Daily summit 'Aaron', 'Davis', and 'Cara' which all asked questions. Two of them used their other news agency just to be able to ask more about internet censorship.
That's right Kamran - though there were four of us: Ahmed, Aaron, Cara and me.
I was the one tapping away on the computer - the others got four questions in: on Egypt, internet censorship, internet censorship again, and then weblogs (because the President had mentioned them as an important development in Iran).
We also grilled the ICT Minister at length...
