I invited an artist friend who’s living in Iran, to come and participate in this years
. But to my surprise I just leaned that livejournal is a filtered site in Iran! That means, you can’t access this journal from Teheran!! Not one or two journals. Whole LJ is blocked!!! Maybe this is old news by now. I knew other blogging sites and tools were banned and filtered in many countries, but LJ? I didn’t know that.
What a world!
Is this still blocked in China too? I know China blocks even Typepad and blogspot. Pakistan did that to blogspot last year. But still people can read filtered content from these countries via proxies.
Do you know what are the other countries that filter Livejournal? I’m curious to know.
Update : LJ gate looks like a useful tool for this situation.
