That’s what Saudi Arabians saw
if they tried to view Blogger,
Flickr, or LiveJournal
yesterday. Blogger.com access has apparently been restored as of
today, but not Flickr or LiveJournal.

Note: I’m not particularly surprised by this (hell, it’s now illegal to sell
“violent video games” to children in California, Illinois, and
Michigan
), but it’s still somewhat surreal. Of course, the other
HUGE Internet censor is China, and well…what once was a Communist
enemy, now makes all our stuff. And holds big hunks of our national debt.

I hear at one time we were interested in being a shining beacon to the world. *sigh*
