From George Palaganas: "While the content of what you generally access on the internet is "threadline relative", this move is a good and positive sign. True, internet readers of blogs should be made aware of the need to adhere to local laws which is not just country specific but also state specific as well. But as we have said, the extent of what the readers access is threadline relative, GOOGLE can provide a "start-up" initiative such as this. But what happens when they access the WEB beyond GOOGLE? Anyway, even US President Obama is against CENSORSHIP on the internet and believes that it should provide a way to protect local interests but should remain an OPEN and dynamic venue for learners. http://www.businessweek.com/…/white-house-won-t-back-intern…

“Over the coming weeks you might notice that the URL of a blog you’re reading has been redirected to a country-code top level domain, or “ccTLD.” For example, if you’re in Australia and viewing [blogname].blogspot.com, you might be redirected [blogname].blogspot.com.au. A ccTLD, when it appears, corresponds with the country of the reader’s current location.”
Google says migrating users to local domains will help promote the freedom of expression while allowing the flexibility to abide by local law.
Do you think censoring content by specific countries is a good move for freedom of expression, or does it simply add to the problem?
Google Will Start Country-Specific Censorship for Blogs
Google figured out Twitter‘s trick for avoiding universally censoring content weeks ago, but managed to go unnoticed for a while.
