Reporters Without Borders has published a "Handbook for Bloggers and Cyber-Dissidents," with technical instructions and advice for people who want to use the internet as a means of expression in repressive societies. "Bloggers are often the only real journalists in countries where the mainstream media is censored or under pressure," they state. "Only they provide independent news, at the risk of displeasing the government and sometimes courting arrest." The handbook provides tips on how to remain anonymous while blogging, explains how to publicize a weblog, and offers basic advice on ethical and journalistic principles.
