I would ask that the list take into consideration research by OpenNet, The
Information Warfare Project, and Freedom House that indicates that in many
non-democratic regimes bloggers are paid to represent and promote a pro-govt
agenda and view.
I would recommend that a variety of voices - both from inside and outside
the repressive countries be sought and invited to this list. Otherwise,
we'll have people on here who are well known govt agents who might have
threatened, intimidated and lead people to have been arrested or worse.
Having open discussion about "liberation technologies" with those who
support repression, well, will make it unsafe for many ...
Something to keep in mind.
