Cubans Finding Voice Online

The Globe and Mail has an interesting article about bloggers in Cuba and how they are finding a voice online only a month after the government of Raul Castro lifted bans on Cubans buying, computers, consumer electronics, having cell phones and staying in luxury tourist hotels. With salaries averaging $20 a month it's amazing how the ingenuity of the people of Cuba is being displayed in their attempts to get online and be heard. "It's about how I live," Yoani Sanchez tells the Associated Press "I think that technically, there are no limits. I have talked about things like Fidel Castro, and you know how taboo that can be."
