The one map is of the American Political blogosphere and the Iranian map includes blogs in general.

"...we identified a subset of the secular/reformist pole focused intently on politics and current affairs and comprised mainly of bloggers living inside Iran, which is linked in contentious dialog with the conservative political sub-cluster"

The Anglo-blogosphere is still self-selecting for technocrats and technophiles- the equivalent of fans more of the printing press than literature. I'm wondering if the Persian web is more social in architecture and function than our own clusterfuck of libertarians and Asperger syndrome enthusiasts with Ph.D's.
