The Committee to Protect Bloggers is back. I’m focusing on making it more strictly a clearinghouse for information on threatened bloggers and threats to bloggers. Subscribe to the feed and I’ll try to keep you up-to-date on horrible happenings around the world.

Thanks to the Teen Titans at Free Kareem, the Committee to Protect Bloggers has a host. Esra’a and her ilk are the ultimate in “disruptive” free speech organizations and we’re lucky to be in such good company. When the site’s up and the domain’s defined, I’ll post it here.
If you haven’t checked out Blogswana lately, I encourage you to do so. Brian is keeping it up and has become an excellent blogger on HIV/AIDS issues, aid, Africa and Botswana topics. We haven’t given up hope we’ll find someone or something to fund the project. Well as I said in my last post, I is a idiot. Militantly.
Because I is a idiot, I was considering reawakening the beast that is, or rather was, the Committee to Protect Bloggers. To do this, I need a free blog host. OK, they’re common enough. But since my techno-eyes are always bigger than my techno-stomach, I need a host that would also be available for constant bugging. Civiblog hosted us last time, and they are great. But since it’s student-run and volunteer, I was rarely able to get my questions answered in any kind of a timely fashion.
Do you know of such an outfit that would fit my demanding bill? If not, do you know of someone who would be dumb enough to set up say a WP blog on their own server and then be a techno-Lovejoy to my techno-Flanders? If so, leave a comment or email me at curthopkins/at/gmail.com or committeetoprotectbloggers/at/gmail.com.
