Blogging, free speech, and reporters without borders

Very interesting little piece on Wired’s blog that might figure into my BAWS project– it would at least be good in terms of scholarship: “Only you can prevent censorious firewalls.” The article is really talking about the international organization Reporters Without Borders. According to them, there are 13 countries which seriously censor Internet content that is critical of the government, and there are 61 people around the world who are in prison for posting “subversive” content on a blog or a web site. Reporters Without Borders is trying to organize an international protest about this through their web site in early November.
