Good links snagged from panel:

Sept. 11 info. (supplied by Shava at our panel yesterday)

Global Voices

Diary of a Political Idiot


Freedom House


Great to finally meet both Shahed and Ethan. Went to lunch with the two of them, Rob, Rachel, and John Bracken. Great conversation about the hip-hop, internets, national security, and garlic noodles. Any meal that includes a conversation about food, that isn’t a complaint about the food you’re eating, is a good meal.

Would love to do a session with Shahed and Ethan about how we can bridge Muslim voices across the world, instead of having Muslim Americans reinventing the wheel on many debates that have happened/are happening already.

Dinner was with a friend of mine from Harvard. Chipotle Salmon. ’nuff said. Talked about our research, family, the usual stuff.

Back to NY tomorrow.

[Update]: Ethan’s post on the panel.
