A new member joins the ever-growing blogosphere, this time from Afghanistan!
Waheed (a 20 year old guy) talks a little in his 1st blog post about the ANA (Afghan National Army) and provides short notes about the TV stations and the availability of internet service in his country:

During the Taliban we didn’t have internet system in Afghanistan but now there are about 25 net cafes in Kabul, and also some in Herat, Kandahar and Balkh provinces. People are really interested to use the internet but its too expensive for people to use it - only rich people can afford it. Durng the Taliban Government we didn’t have any TV channels but now we have 4 TV channels in Kabul and for the first time in Ghazni, Balkh, Herat and Kandahar provinces.

Read the whole thing.
