The Arabist

Public Service Announcement

This won't do much to protect those gutsy Egyptian bloggers standing out on a limb to expose torture in Egyptian detention centers, but given that Egypt has for the first time jailed a blogger for the contents of his blog, and given disturbing reports of harassment and intimidation of bloggers by security forces, less courageous bloggers should check out Ethan's excellent guide to blogging anonymously with TOR and Wordpress. RSF's guide is also worth a look (Arabic here).

If you're an anonymous blogger, remember: your pseudonym affords you no protection against anyone with even a little bit of determination and know-how.
