The Cuban government has launched its own blogging platform that allows citizens there to post their thoughts and ideas on the country’s ‘intranet.’ Granma says Reflejos was developed by programmers from the Computers and Electronics Club and can be accessed on the island via any of the public servers available to students, public health workers and government officials. It’s developers say each user (there are 3,477 as of Thursday morning) is limited to 250mb of disk space and the only content limitations are that writers are required to “tell the truth about Cuba.”

Update: The indefatigable 14ymedio just signed up to create an account and see whether the admin’s claims that people can post without restriction are true. The have been unable to post as of Thursday afternoon, and we’re not holding out breath. This is not going to go well for the folks at Reflejos.
