Hoder says that blogs are serving as bridges between different parts of Iranian society.
"Women in Iran have never had a chance to talk about the way they see the world freely." Blogs give them the anonymity to do so. The older generation are reading younger people's blogs to get a better understanding of how they think.
They're creating the only forum for true political dialogue. Blogs are preparing the ground for the future of real political change.
This coming spring's election will be impacted by internet discourse, he predicts.
Blogs have made hardline conservatives so frustrated by blogs, they've launched a massive crackdown against blogs. Now most political websites and blogs are blocked. A hardliner recently wrote an editorial that the blogs are a CIA plot to undermine the regime.
