President Obama recently responded to award-winning, Cuban blogger Yoani Sanchez's written questions on the Generation Y blog. In his written response, he thanked Ms. Sanchez’s readers in Cuba and around the world for the opportunity to exchange views web 2.0-style. President Obama commended Ms. Sanchez for providing “the world a unique window into the realities of daily life in Cuba” and applauded the “collective efforts to empower fellow Cubans to express themselves through the use of technology.” He further expressed the importance of what Yoani Sanchez and other bloggers are doing to project their voice “not just for the advancement of the freedom of expression itself, but also for people outside of Cuba to gain a better understanding of the life, struggles, joys, and dreams of Cubans on the island.”
