I guess, in my last post, I wasn't too off about the curbing of civil liberties of Muslims by the state. This was in LA Times today (I saw it on Iranian.com).
On a happier note, Hossein Derakhshan will be at Stanford tomorrow. Here is an email I got from the Persian Students Alliance at Stanford:
"Please join us for an evening with Hossein Derakhshan (Hoder), an Iranian blogger who currently resides in Toronto and publishes "Sardabir:Khodam" at http://i.hoder.com/. Hossein has created a tutorial on how to create a weblog and has encouraged many Iranians develop their own weblogs.

Time: 6:30PM
Location: Timoshenko Lounge - Stanford UniversityAddress: 230 Ayrshire farm ln. Stanford, CA

We will then leave to a nearby restaurant for dinner/dessert and informal chat. Please feel free to forward this e-mail to your friends who are interested in this subject."
I look forward to this event.
