(Note: Some of these stories I learned about from other blogs on my blogroll - esp. Penultimos Dias - which is especially good at "filtering" the web and finding many of the best Cuba-related content out there).
with Katrin Hansing at the Bildner Center on Friday, April 16.
- Columbia Journalism Grad Student Alice Speri (That's pronounced "Ali-che," not Alice as she's Italian) just published this lengthy story on the Cuban press (esp. Juventud Rebelde) and the Internet/Blogger revolution at the Global Press Watch blog.
- Here's a story from The Economist on recent protests and counter protests in Havana.
- MediaShift has an interesting story on Cuba's Telecentros and their potential impact on Internet access on the island. (Note: The story is followed by an especially rich comments section).
- EthnoCuba highlights a new documentary entitled The Black Roots of Salsa that emphasizes the connection between Cuba's traditional neighborhood/solar Rumba and the birth of Salsa. The post features a powerful trailer from the film and an interview with its director Christian Liebich.
- The New York Times has a brief obituary for Carlos Franqui here.
- Finally, I'll have a new post, "The Cuban Economy, Corruption, and Kiddnapped Information (again)," up at The Havana Note on Tuesday morning.
