Yesterday, one of my favourite bloggers alerted me to the story of India banning xxx.blogspot.com/xxx.typepad.com/
xxx.blogs.com/and www.geocities.com/xxx. Speculation for the reasons for the
censorship banning have been linked to the recent bombings in Mumbai.
In less than a week I see that the pressure was such that the Indian government had to retreat from it’s censorship and state that:
“Because of a technological error, the Internet providers went beyond what was expected of them which in turn resulted in the unfortunate blocking of all blogs.” – said the government official.
One domain name and one web site can create the same type of information as a blog.
Bloggers and the blogosphere- too wired, too smart, too many.
