Ok, so I haven’t actually done a blogosphere round up for three weeks, but I’m trying to make amends dammit. This is by no means comprehensive coverage. Simply mentions of blog entries (and two articles) I’ve found interesting recently.
- The Renegade of Junk is furious that the Indian Supreme Court is making it worse for rape victims with their use of language.
- Sakshi finds it bizarre that Jackie Chan wants the Asian (Chinese and Indian) film industry to “unite” against the Americans.
- Riz has launched a new blog on market trading called Always Bet on Black.
- Sepia Mutiny points to a Daily Show clip that satirises religious outrage.
- Rezwan refers to a conference set up to deal with racism in Saudi Arabia.
- Sonia Faleiro has written another great article, this time on Mumbai’s top transexual actor Bobby Darling.
- Neha says that Global Voices, who she contributes to, is having a London meet. One for the diary folks.
- 360 East reports on how the Amman bombings put Jordanian bloggers on the map.
- Lenin points out the lies during Hurricane Katrina of people supposedly shooting at rescue helicopters.
- Away from the blogosphere, The Register says there is one man to save the internet. And he is the Masood Khan, Pakistan’s Ambassador.
- And finally, Maniac Muslim has written a funny article on Muslims at Hogwarts university trying to convert everyone.
- Update: Philobiblion has this week’s Brit-blog roundup. Two entries stand out: Tim Ireland’s flash film for Tony Blair’s son Leo, and The Religious Policeman on executions in Saudi Arabia.
Feel free to add your links in the comments section. As ever, contact me to put forward your entries for next week.
