Saving Syria Planet

June 1st, 2008 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

Syria Planet, the feed for every Syrian blog on the internet, is being taken down in one week.

A lack of resources is being blamed. But this can’t happen. Syria Planet has held the Syria blogosphere together since the days when there were just a handful of blogs. Taking it down would destroy the Syrian blogosphere’s public space.

And re-creating it would take a very long time. No-one – other than SyPlanet – has a decent list of every Syrian blog.

Let’s save Syria Planet.

    It would be a shame if Syrian Planet shuts down. For those who have not figured it out Ayman Hourieh, a fellow Ladkani I believe, is the administrator. His technical blog address is:
