Blogs Serve as News Source

While Armenia has refused to publish news from media outlets which do not emanate from the government, they have failed to block blogs. So many individuals both inside and outside of Armenia are using blogs to report the news and provide links to different articles and other perspectives on world events. Blogs really do provide an opportunity for more open information, particularly in countries where there is limited freedom of press.

That's similar to the type of work that the Global Voices project ( fights to protect outside of North America and Western Europe. In addition to aggregating interesting blog content, Global Voices also advocates against Internet censorship to promote access to blogs and other media.
