Does anyone know Salem Pax?

I was reading an article about this Web Blogger from Iraq. Does anyone know anytingh about him? He has disappeared and has not blogged since Monday March 24.

Here is a link to his blog. It appears this person is for real.

The electricity and communications systems are probably not up.

That was a perspective you don't often see. I too, am curious if anyone has any more information on this.

I'm going to stay posted on the reconstruction of Iraq's communications structure. There's something about the U.S. starting to broadcast programming for Iraqis, so they're working on it, I suppose. When they get their Internet stuff fixed we should be able to tune in Iraq. I'm going to start trying today. Heck, I'd like to be friends with these people. Why not e-mail Baghdad and say hello?
