New Blogs At RFE/RL

In additions to our stalwarts, The Power Vertical, Persian Letters, Watchdog, and Caucasus Report, there are a couple of new RFE/RL blogs on the block.

Chaikhana, written by correspondents Farangis Najibullah and Bruce Pannier, focuses on all things Central Asia.

Tangled Web, written by Luke Allnutt, looks at the smart ways people in closed societies are using the Internet to circumvent their governments (and what their governments are doing to stop them).

Hope you'll read them, engage, follow them on Twitter, and add to your RSS feed.

The name recognizes RFE/RL's role as a surrogate broadcaster to places without free media. You can write us at
