Disasters, Governance and a Handbook for Bloggers and Cyber Dissidents

So it's been a mad week at work and things don't look like calming down anytime soon. Here are two quick picks for the weekend:

Firstly we have "Disasters and governance" which talks about the various Internet based website which have been created in response to the several of recent world disasters such as the Asian Tsunami and the Katrina Hurricane in the US. The second piece is "Handbook for Bloggers and Cyber Dissidents" which talks about a new handbook for bloggers and political activists. It talks about how to set up your own blog and how to use it whilst still preserving your personal digital anonymity. This book is definitely aimed at bloggers from countries or regimes which routinely censor or restrict the mainstream media. It also covers basic ethical and journalistic principles to improve your credibility as a blogger.

The other item of note is I'm intending to change the location of this blog and its system to a nice new Wordpress page over at nonado (see but it'll need some technical figuring out as I'm only going to move if I can get all my archives and comments. More to follow on this.
