Rezwan was one of the first, if not the first, blogger from Bangladesh starting his 3rd world view blog in 2003. For more than a decade he ... has been a well known and pioneering personality in the Bangladeshi cyberspace, and has engaged himself in informing the world better about Bangladesh, South Asia and the wonderful stories worth sharing from here. Rezwan has also done a fantastic job as author and editor for the Global Voices blog network. His own contribution is significant in this network and he also translated a lot of the best blog posts from Bangladesh from Bengali to English and vice versa. Rezwan has a significant contribution in building up several online archives, e.g. on the liberation war in Bangladesh. Rezwan has a strong knowledge on Internet and Internet Governance related issues, especially for Bangladesh, as well as being a strong Social Media Advisor for organisations, government and businesses. And not the least, he is a very friendly and hard working person which makes him a valuable resource for those who hire his services.

Rezwan is one of the first, if not the first, blogger from Bangladesh. His 3rd world view blog started in 2003 and through this he has shar ... ed thousands of stories from Bangladesh and South Asia, and quite often given his readers a new and refreshing view on things. He was very helpful as advisor for my company when we started the world´s first Bengali language blog community in 2005 and has ever since remained as a good friend and industry colleague. Rezwan is well known and enjoys a strong respect among the generation of bloggers and social media activists in Bangladesh since he started. Rezwan has been an ambassador for Bangladesh through the Global Voices blog network where he has contributed with many strong and important stories from Bangladesh as author, editor and translator. Rezwan has also been a rare resource for Internet Governance and freedom of expression in Bangladesh and has represented the country in many forums and conferences at home and abroad for a nearly a decade. Finally, Rezwan is a very friendly, sincere and hard working person and will be an asset for anyone hiring him to be their professional advisor.
