Iraqi Olivebranch Network Blog by PC Mike's E-Journal

My NBC-TV "High Tech Talk" segment this week is on a fascinating collection of bloggers from Iraq called the Olivebranch Network.
Posted in the comments is a link to the story of how the Olivebranch Network was formed, which is very interesting as well. Antony Loewenstein wrote on February 15th:
In early January, I announced a competition to find a young journalist keen to develop his or her skills and an opportunity to start a website, display their work and develop a unique voice away from the corporate media.

I received a number of applications, many of whom could have been worthy winners. However, a decision had to be made.

The winner is Luke Skinner, a 19-year-old living in Perth. I discovered his blog and found his activism and attitude infectious. He has a deep interest in the Middle East and Western involvement in the region. He campaigned strongly against the Iraq war. He told me he wanted to bring reason to the debate over the Middle East by launching a website dedicated to new voices in the blogsophere. Olivebranch Network was born.
