DirkTheCow on Twitter just linked to ThisIsHerd blog post on Vancouver film students who blog. 3rd largest country for blogging.

Iran: A nation of bloggers from Mr.Aaron on Vimeo.
It’s just a shame that they don’t mention that the President of Iran blogs

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran Blog

It’s not that the video is wrong, it’s just that knowing the President of a country – especially Iran – blogs, adds something to the story. He even has comments turned on. Not the type we have in the West but presumably honest and valid in Middle Eastern culture:

Dear and honorable president my lasts comments not was pubblied and i admire you why this? Are messages too much for show all? Long life to you and Iran and all country that no like death but life.

If you are worried about negative comments, or having trouble selling social media to a Marketing Director consider this: is your brand in worse shape, would get more negative comments than Telstra (nowwearetalking) or the President of one of the so-called Axis of Evil? no? thought not. No excuses now then šŸ™‚

By the way, I noticed Malcolm Turnbull has slacked off the blogging lately. Why? He got something better to do? Heh. *cracks whip*
