Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad  (Source: UN)
The "connected" generation in Iran continues to push the envelope

Political analysts continue to monitor internet usage in Iran, noticing a younger, more tech-savvy generation put added pressure on the Iranian government to open up the flow of information.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his government have worked diligently to try and obstruct the flow of communication through the country -- but continues to leave gaping loopholes that can be exploited by tech-friendly computer users.

Using the power of the internet, teenagers in Iran are sending messages, videos and other published information to one another throughout the country.  Specifically, they also are sharing information with people in the Middle East and the rest of the world at an alarming rate.  

The Iranian government will continue to try and censor the media and internet, but will likely suffer a defeat, as more viral videos are recorded and shared.  Furthermore, people outside of Iran are using the internet to show support for Iranians, a notion that wasn't shared just a few years ago. 

I'm curious to see how Iranian citizens continue to stay one step ahead of the government, which is looking to continually shut them down.  Unlike China, it doesn't seem like the Iranian government looks to actively jail bloggers on such a large scale, but that doesn't mean they are able to publish content without any repercussions.

In the future, look for younger internet users inside Iran to continue showing some of the real world situations that average citizens must deal with.
