Democracy: The insider information about the election results are out, and the populist hardline militarist-Islamist candidate, Mahmoud Ahmadinezhad has won the election with a margin wide enough to make sure that any claim about rigging the election would be ineffective. The Iranian people have proved their idiocy, the bad cycle of a hardline Parliament-Government-Judiciary is now completed, and we have a religio-fascistic government now, for the first time since the Iranian Revolution.

I now see absolutely no future in what I was doing in Iran. I see no future in any kind of entreprenourial work here (or even any research work involving importing foreign technology to Iran), and after Elnaz wakes up, we will start discussing our immediate future, which may involve melting our assests at the earliest opportunity.

Specifically, according to the threats I have received before, specially about my work on the Wikipedia (I have created and contributed a lot to that page about Ahmadinezhad for example), I consider myself in some danger, personally. It's not immediate future, but perhaps a year or so from now.

This may be an abuse of this blog or its listing on Planet GNOME, but I want to announce that I am now open for any kind of job in foreign countries related to my expertise. There is a very draft CV of mine available here, which I will complete tomorrow. If you have a job for me out side Iran, please leave me an email at roozbeh@gmail.com.
