Radio Free Nepal

Rebecca MacKinnon's RConversations and Jeff Jarvis's Buzz Machine have introduced a new blog, Radio Free Nepal, with this "chilling intro":
King Gyandendra of Nepal has issued a ban on independent news broadcasts and has threatened to punish newspapers for reports that run counter to the official monarchist line. Given that any person in Nepal publishing reports critical of "the spirit of the royal proclamation" is subject to punishment and/or imprisonment, contributors to this blog will publish their reports from Nepal anonymously.
