5 thoughts on “Breaking: Widget Maker Slide banned in Turkey”

  1. Pakistan does not block FB or MySpace. It tried to block YouTube but thats been lifted. Blogger was also banned but I believe thats history too.

  2. Nice post touching on a trend we may not like to think about very much — blocking access is likely to get more and more common around the world. Three quick points. The web is already too much split between US (the most open place) and the rest of the world. The blocking trend pushes us further in this direction. Second, it is difficult to come up with strategies to contest blocking decisions because that means dipping one’s toes into foreign legal systems. Ycch! Third, in the future, blocking might be employed for commercial reasons as well as political and moral ones. Och!
