The Virtual Sweet Tea House: An Overview of the Tibetan Cyberspace

For Blogday 2010, I was asked to write an overview of the Tibetan cyberspace for a site called I Heart Tibet, dedicated to documenting cultural resistance in Tibet today.

I realised that even though I spend so much time putting High Peaks Pure Earth together, I had never written any kind of overview or introduction for what I do. So it’s a good feeling to have put some basic things down!

Here are the links to the article on various places on the interwebs:
