Read about Cuban Bloggers

I heard this story about Cuban bloggers on CNN this evening, but the link I’m giving you is from CBS News; I can’t find the story online yet.

I’m asking anyone who reads this blog to check out the blogs of two Cuban journalists:

Generation Y can be read in a number of languages.

From Here (Desde Aqui) translates well using Google.

I sold my Spanish-English dictionary on eBay a few years ago, before the fees skyrocketed, and I’ve always been sorry. But with Google (I don’t like Babel Fish, I could never get it to work), a dictionary is no longer necessary. I made some money on eBay, but unless you are selling brand new electronics you’re out of luck now.

But I digress.

Direct quote from the CBS article:

Only foreigners and some government employees and academics are allowed Internet accounts and these are administered by the state.

Ordinary Cubans can join an island-wide network that allows them to send and receive international e-mail. Lines are long at youth clubs, post offices and the few Internet cafes that provide access, but the rest of the Web is blocked – a control far stricter than even China’s or Saudi Arabia’s.

Still, thousands of Cubans pay about $40 a month for black market dial-up Internet accounts bought through third parties overseas or stolen from foreign providers. Or they use passwords from authorized Cuban government accounts that hackers swipe or buy from corrupt officials.

Sanchez said so many Cubans read her blog that fans stop her on the street.

I won’t take for granted my ability to blog about anything and everything.
