Ban on blogsite?


China has ordered a, a blogging service in China, to shutdown it service. It is the annual season that China’s Parliament held session. (via Joi Ito)

Singapore is also having our Parliament debate right now and I am glad there is no gag order on the Internet (at least none I am aware of). If nothing else, Singapore Government is seeking feedback via the Internet IRC although with pretty disappointing results. (Sorry, cant find the news article link).

I blame the lack of understanding of the tools to use then the Internet specifically. I mean, what do you expect from someone who spend a few hours online per week, was told that IRC is the best way to get feedback from public, and walk away disappointed after giving it a try? Maybe they should learn from their kids on how to use IRC…
