Stran RSF in Handbook for bloggers/dissidents

Tale objava je močno povezana s tisto z naslovom “Stran EFF in Legal Guide for Bloggers“: http://tadej.sopca.com/…/…guide-for-bloggers izpred nekaj mesecev, v njej pa bom pisal o neki novi z bloganjem povezani strani RSF: http://www.rsf.org (ali “Reporters sans frontieres”), katero sem sicer odkril že kar nekaj časa nazaj, omenil pa bpm tudi PDF fajl/dokument “Handbook for bloggers and cyber-dissidents“, katerega si lahko zdownloadate na tej strani (za direktni link glej spodaj čisto na dnu) in od katerega glavna poglavja naštejem spodaj v objavi. Moram pa tudi povedati, da je to še ena objava iz mojega Sopca “to-do” fajla; pač, glede na to, da je že par dni totalno vroče in se mi zato ne da česa čisto novega pisati.

Tukaj imate najprej link do page-a “Handbook for bloggers and cyber-dissidents“: http://www.rsf.org/…id_rubrique=542, na njej pa je tudi link do zgoraj v uvodu omenjenega fajla; tule spodaj pa si lahko preberete listo poglavij v njem.

BLOGGERS, THE NEW HERALDS OF FREE EXPRESSION

WHAT’S A BLOG?

THE LANGUAGE OF BLOGGING

CHOOSING THE BEST TOOL

HOW TO SET UP AND RUN A BLOG

WHAT ETHICS SHOULD BLOGGERS HAVE?

GETTING YOUR BLOG PICKED UP BY SEARCH-ENGINES

WHAT REALLY MAKES A BLOG SHINE?

PERSONAL ACCOUNTS

HOW TO BLOG ANONYMOUSLY

TECHNICAL WAYS TO GET ROUND CENSORSHIP

ENSURING YOUR E-MAIL IS TRULY PRIVATE

INTERNET-CENSOR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

Ker sem pa naknadno ugotovil, da je ta objava nekam kratka (predvsem napram drugim/prejšnjim objavam na tem mojem blogu), dodajam še prvih šest odstavkov iz nekako uvodnega prvega “BLOGGERS, THE NEW HERALDS OF FREE EXPRESSION” poglavja v tem dokumentu.

Blogs get people excited. Or else they disturb and worry them. Some people distrust them. Others see them as the vanguard of a new information revolution. One thing’s for sure: they’re rocking the foundations of the media in countries as different as the United States, China and Iran.

It’s too soon to really know what to think of blogs. We’ve been reading newspapers, watching TV and listening to the radio for decades now and we’ve learned how to immediately tell what’s news and what’s comment, to distinguish a tabloid “human interest” magazine from a serious one and an entertainment programme from a documentary.

We don’t have such antennae to figure out blogs. These “online diaries” are even more varied than the mainstream media and it’s hard to know which of them is a news site, which a personal forum or one that does serious investigation or one that’s presenting junk evidence. It’s difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff.

Some bloggers will gradually develop their own ethical standards, to become more credible and win public confidence. But the Internet is still full of unreliable information and people exchanging insults. A blog gives everyone, regardless of education or technical skill, the chance to publish material. This means boring or disgusting blogs will spring up as fast as good and interesting ones.

But blogging is a powerful tool of freedom of expression that has enthused millions of ordinary people. Passive consumers of information have become energetic participants in a new kind of journalism – what US blog pioneer Dan Gillmor calls “grassroots journalism … by the people, for the people” (see chapter on “What ethics should bloggers have?”).

Bloggers are often the only real journalists in countries where the mainstream media is censored or under pressure. Only they provide independent news, at the risk of displeasing the government and sometimes courting arrest. Plenty of bloggers have been hounded or thrown in prison. One of the contributors to this handbook, Arash Sigarchi, was sentenced to 14 years in jail for posting several messages online that criticised the Iranian regime. His story illustrates how some bloggers see what they do as a duty and a necessity, not just a hobby. They feel they are the eyes and ears of thousands of other Internet users.

In pa za konec končno še link do tega zgoraj že večkrat omenjenega fajla/dokumenta v PDF formatu z istim imenom kot sam page handbook_bloggers_cyberdissidents-GB.pdf (Pdf, 1,6 MB), iz katerega sem tudi kopiral listo vseh poglavij in pa tale tekst takoj zgoraj, in pa tudi link do malo drugačne variante istega fajla Bloggers_Handbook2.pdf (Printer friendly Pdf, 3,4 MB); bajdvej, jaz sem si zdownloadal ta prvega oz. ta manjšega od obeh.

    Hvala lepa darja za tale tvoj spodbuden komentar. Vidim, da link pri tvojem imenu kaže na stran Razgledi: http://www.razgledi.net, zato bi te opozoril tudi na objavo “Moj blog na strani Razgledi, GA statistika“: http://tadej.sopca.com/…/…ga-statistika, kjer sem sam pisal o tem, da sem opazil, da se je ta moj novi Sopca blog začel pojavljati pod sekcijo “izbrani blogi”, ki pa, kakor sem videl/odkril danes, na žalost več ne obstaja.
