It is because of this that the non-Iranian community is also very important. This includes me (no Iranian heritage but an interest in the country and language) as well as some people like Nate Silver for example, who I assume also has no strong personal ties to Iran...as well as sites like Daily Kos and any others that deal with international issues. One very easy way to keep up a steady coverage of events for those that may have a site with a lot of traffic, a lot of interest but no specialized knowledge is to simply collaborate with someone in Iran or with family there, post updates written by that person every few days or so, and keep the process anonymous.
As for protests in Iran - the next major ones will occur in a few days, on 16 Azar (7 December), and NIAC is always a good place to stay up to date.
