Iraq Unfiltered: 'Salam Pax' Blog Compilation in PDF
Leading up to and since the toppling of the Saddam Hussein government in Iraq, some of the freshest and most riveting reporting came not from a traditional media organization or officially embedded journalists, but rather from risky, insightful accounts posted on the Internet by an anonymous Weblog author in Baghdad. Using the blogging pseudonym 'Salam Pax,' the unknown correspondent provided unfiltered, front-row glimpses of life (and death) in Iraq, untainted by government spin or political agenda. A free PDF-based chapter of a new book compilation of his Web diary entries is available for download, as we report in our own Planet PDF Weblog. Monday, October 13, 2003

Ad Poll: Giving or Receiving PDF?
