I really hate to ask it...

But I need help on my homework... or more importantly the Research Paper that lets me graduate!

Heh. So anyway, I have to write a research paper, and I need 7 sources. Only 1 can be a website.

My topic is:

Does a* government have the right to limit what people say on their blogs?
Now since its apparent that my main source of information is cut off from me, I've found a way around it. But it requires the help of bloggers. I can interview people to get the information I need. Idealy I would most like to talk to the bloggers in other countries, though my offer is extended to all. (I'll give ya links if you help... even though I'm not blogging-eh). So if you could email me at mookie_riffic @ yahoo dot com or leave a comment with your email, I'd really appreciate it.

*as in any government, including and not excluding the U.S. but I think the US is pretty clear on it.. ya know, the whole first admendment thing

So... Please?

UPDATE: I changed my topic to

Blogs are destroying corporate media's hold on the public

Feel free to interview me. I was an American Studies major, and am sort of a political and history junkie.

Well I'm happy to help. I worked in main stream (BBC) media for 6 years and am now an IT professional ... plus I'm an opinionated SOB and am happy to set up an IM chat provided we can work round the whole time zone difference - virtual jet lag gives me a real headache.

I'd also give Simon ( a shout as he is very involved in the current asian (chinese) blog furore!!!

Since I sort of teach government at a University I might be qualified to help, but it would have to be anonymous.

If ya wanna go back to the basics, there's a link in the sidebar at Consent of the Govcerned that's searchable.

Obviously the word "blogosphere" wont givce you any hints. But searching general themes of speech and the government's limits might help you out a little.

Good luck and happy hunting!

Oops! Neglected to mention that the searchable link is to the brilliant Federalist Papers. :)
