Why to blog in the developing world

While western bloggers doing their stuff mostly because of fun (and some egocentric reasons :-), its seems to be totally different, why peaople oin the developing world are blogging (as lonng as they can do it). Just found this in an article about the cambodian bloggers aka cloggers.

Lux, 28, became interested in blogging soon after it took
off in Korea, Japan, and China and is a pioneer of "clogging" - as
Cambodian blogging is known. In fact, he coined the term.
"I wanted to explore the technology and see how it could be
used for the development of young people and the country," he said.
"It is very interesting how blogging can change the political
landscape. This technology gives some power to the people."
