Burma and blogging

The military dictatorship in Burma has turned nasty against the pro-democracy protests spearheaded by Buddhist monks. UPDATE The first reports of deaths are coming in with battering to death the preferred option to shooting. Despite the limited access to the internet (UPDATE claims the junta is starting to reduce bandwidth), Burmese bloggers have played a key role in circumventing the press ban and getting information and images of the protest out of the country.
