Ahmadinejad wants your comments
We can say anything about mr Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (1956) but we can't say that he doesn't like new technologies
How many presidents have their own blog?
Ahmadinejad has one but he updates it seldom, in the last post he wrote:
"As you know, the purpose of running this blog is to have a direct and mutual contact and communication with the viewers and even though I have received many messages from the viewers to update the blog and write new notes, I preferred to write less and spend more time on reading the viewers' messages – and not let this communication tool become just a one-way medium."
He admitted that there's a staff ("some of my trusted students") reading messages and shortening them for him:
"I personally have read those messages that are considered to be short. I even have read those messages that have started with a sentence like "I know that the president is not going to read this message, but…."
Also some of my trusted students have shortened the long messages for me and have prepared a statistical report regarding all of the messages which I have read and studied those too. God willing, a portion of the overall analysis of the messages and its interesting results will be posted on the blog in the future."
In his blog there's a selection of messages sent by common people: some (the majority) pro the president and some against. It's a pity that i can't fully read the e-mail address of the people: how can i know that all the messages aren't fake?
