The eight Reporters Without Borders nominees for the blog contest

The German radio station Deutsche Welle has published the list of nominees for its weblog contest, including those chosen by Reporters Without Borders for the "freedom of expression" category. The bloggers who have been singled out include former Tunisian judge Mokhtar Yahyaoui, currently on a hunger strike in protest against President Ben Ali's repressive policies.

From the more than 130 blogs proposed by Internet users, Reporters Without Borders and Deutsche Welle picked the shortlist of eight because of a particular passion they have displayed in their defence of free expression. All of these eight blogs carry news and information not found in the traditional media.

Internet users can vote on http://www.thebobs.de/ to indicate who they prefer. But it will be up to the panel of judges to choose the final winners. The results will be announced on 21 November.

These are the eight nominees in the special category sponsored by Reporters Without Borders:

  • China Digital Times (http://chinadigitaltimes.net/) A news blog about China that is published outside of the country. A very rich source for those who want to follow Chinese current affairs.
  • Chronique d├ęplaisante d'une dictature ordinaire (http://www.addisferengi.net/) A French resident in Addis Ababa criticises repression in Ethiopia. The blog includes lots of interviews with Ethiopian dissidents.
  • Manal and Alaa Bit Bucket (http://www.manalaa.net/) An Egyptian blog promoting free expression and human rights. A forum for discussion, but also a resource centre for Arabic-speaking Internet users who would like to set up their own blog.
  • Wang Yi's microphone (http://zhivago.tianyablog.com/) A Chinese intellectual who uses his blog as a microphone to denounce the repressive system that rules his country.
  • Hanif Mazrooie (http://hanif.ir/) An independent Iranian journalist's blog which led to its author spending a month in prison in September 2004.
  • Parastood (http://www.parastood.com/) One of the oldest Iranian blogs, famous for its open criticism.
  • Colombian realities (http://lacoctelera.com/realidades) A Colombian journalist who writes critically about a range of issues including his country's pervasive violence and corruption.
  • Yahyaoui (http://yahyaoui.blogspot.com/) The blog of former judge Mokhtar Yahyaoui, one of Tunisia's leading political dissidents and the uncle of cyber-dissident Zouhair Yahyaoui. His blog was recently pirated and rendered unavailable. But it can still be accessed by using Google's "cached" function (enter yahyaoui + blogspot in Google and then choose the "cached" option). Mokhtar Yahyaoui is one of seven Tunisian civil society figures who are currently on hunger strike in protest against the lack of freedom in Tunisia, where his blog is censored, along with dozens of others. Nonetheless, Tunis is to host the World Summit on the Information Society on 16-18 November, which is being organised under the aegis of the United Nations.

Special DNN - BUSINESS NEWS Report For Donnacha DeLong!

-- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- PRESS RELEASE DNN - BUSINESS NEWS.
The Ten million dollar pixel website does something NO other ONE million pixel web site can! - The'll Give TWO million dollar away!!
Just recently we reported about The Tenmilliondollarwebsite.com. The site is a copycat of The Million Dollar Homepage by a 21-year-old British entrepreneur Alex Tew. The Ten million dollar is rapidly evolving into the fastest growing 'pixel' web site online. They now offer $2.000.000,00 to the largest advertiser on their site.

THE NETHERLANDS, October, 2005 - The tenmilliondollarwebsite.com takes pixel advertising several big steps further. As you can see on http://tenmilliondollarwebsite.com/blog The site had more than 100,000.00 pageviews in 6 weeks being online!! We now have an Alexa page rank far into the 100.000 says Walter proud. He and Janwillem, two guys from The Netherlands are the owners of the site.

They want to live their dream and start an own (Internet) marketing, hosting and consultant business, using the proceedings of the site... They have without a doubt the most valuable name...

To boost the value of your TROPI (Traffic Return On Pixel Investment we learned) they organized a huge and unique promotion!
Asking about this special promotion, Janwillem says: As said before, we can do something no other million dollar website can do: We are giving away more than $2.000.000,00!!

We will give one of our advertisers $2.000.000,00 ( two million dollars) as soon as our site is filled for 50%! The best thing about it is: Nobody needs to participate in any kind of lottery to have a chance to become a millionaire.

We asked the guys from Holland who will get the money then and what they have to do for it;. It is simple, they replied. To win this $2.000.000,00, you'll need to become the largest advertiser on our site and we'll personally give you $2.000.000,00 (two million dollars). We will do so as soon as our site is filled for 50%!!

On top of this, we'll choose five of our advertisers at random, no matter what size or time they are with us, and reward them each with $100.000,00! Also after the site is filled for 50%! So, in fact, we are giving away $2,500.000,00! Part of that could be yours. All you need to do is buy some pixels on our site!

Walter tells us that he knew their site would become a success and now he predicts this promotion will boost the site in the top five movers and shakers!!' We are here to set records! And we will. This means great exposure for all of our advertisers! We have had people boosting their sales figures mainly by the visitors they get from us!

A great stunt like this will certainly attract oceans of curious and click happy people who will be visiting our site. Who would not want to get $2.000.000,00 in cash from the ten million dollar website? Just for being the largest advertiser on the only TEN million dollar website!

Both guys smile when they say: We'll invite anyone to buy pixels and have a chance to change their lives!
Wow, Even if you would buy advertisement for $1.000.000,00 you'd still gain a full 100%
Remember! Your $100,00 pixel friends placed on our site could mean you gain at least $100.000,00!!!

We are no students, and we are not looking to pay for college. Yet, when the site is successful enough, we would love to pay and we will pay for people who never had college or even seen a school before in their lives. We have made plans when the site reaches a certain level of success, says Janwillem.

Find out more about Walter and Janwillem, W2solutions.info and their www.tenmilliondollarwebsite.com
W2solutions.info will be a Dutch business which offers profit design, profit solutions, web hosting services, consultation services and they endeavor to use own design as well as open source software for client projects wherever possible in order to keep development costs down. We are working very hard to try and get this baby walking. The site will be a great help. We ask anyone to buy our pixels.

Be their largest advertiser and gain $2.000.000,00!

Because bigger is better.

Hi Donnacha DeLong ,

Alex Tew here!

You most probably heard of my website, the world famous million dollar pixel page.

Due to it nearly filling up, I personally reccommend the next (and best) working pixel website:

The new and improved pixel adventure:

The ten million dollar website.


See what MSN.COM already says about it!

They even call it: greatest value in advertising

If you did not yet get your pixel advertising, come and get it now!

Regards,


Alex Tew.
