Freedom of Speech
By Sean on Aug 13, 2007
I never thought that the fact that youtube was banned in Thailand would affect me. I mean here I am in Australia with all the freedoms of speech and expression that I've grown up with and take for granted.
Last week I was in Bangkok with a bunch of my colleagues and wanted to forward this clip to them to illustrate a discussion we were having about the role of the SE team. When I checked the clip to make sure it ran OK I received the following message... "Sorry! the web site you are accessing has been blocked by ministry of information and communication technology"
So everything is connected. What happens to internet users in Thailand, or China or Peru matters to me. To you. To us.
