BBC NEWS | Technology | Iranian bloggers rally against censorship: "Speaking at the UN summit in Geneva, Iranian President Mohammad Khatami told delegates that the key requirements of a knowledge based society are a 'commitment to ethical values, human rights and principles of democracy'. "

Sort of an ironic position to take for somebody whose country actively blocks access to political websites.

Really exciting to note that Iranians who wish to get around the limitations on free speech are turning to the Internet, and blogging in particular, as a way to get their message out and share ideas.
