JUST GOT THE WEEKLY STANDARD'S PDF EDITION (it's for the issue that comes out Monday), and a whole page (actually the better part of two) has been turned over to Zeyad's photos and reports from the Iraqi antiterror marches. That's quite an accomplishment for a previously unknown blogger. And congratulations to Jeff Jarvis for sending the digital camera that arrived just in time to make this possible!
And speaking of the advantages of digital over film, the camera that Jeff sent will also record web-quality video with sound. I hope that Zeyad will take advantage of that. I've offered to provide hosting if bandwidth is an issue. You can argue about film for art photography, but for photojournalism, digital rules -- and the capacity to do tv news via the web is an awfully cool thing to have, especially when it comes with a camera that costs a couple of hundred bucks.
UPDATE: Jeff Jarvis has posted the Weekly Standard page. And he's asking for help on how to get support to Iraqi bloggers.
