Afghans all over the world can keep connected with their country through a unique web site - Afghan Radio Connect - that gives them access to local news from Afghanistan’s 33 local radio stations.

The Afghan Radio Connect project, which recently won a Manthan award for Excellence and Innovation in ICT, started in January 2007. Nai, an organisation supporting open media in Aghanistan and Internews joined hands to develop this concept. The Afghan Radio Connect website allows listeners to find radio stations via a map or the station name or by subscribing to the RSS feed and newsletter.

Such an academy had been part of his plan for years, but he’d been consumed by other projects—building a career as well as a world-class photo agency, a degree-granting school of photography, and an international photo festival.

But it will be crucial to everything, from covering the elections in Burma and addressing impunity in the Philippines to protecting the integrity of the Internet as a democratic medium throughout the region.

Interviews wanted at jailed Baku blogger's London protest

I'll have a small video camera at the demonstration outside the Azerbaijan Embassy on Friday Jan 22 @ 1pm.

The idea is to get short, 30" clips from some of those who made the effort to turn up.

The interviews will go into an article on Media Helping Media (MHM) and on MHM's You Tube site and our Facebook Group.

So if you see me with a small Flip camera and want to send a message, please say hi.
