Censoring the internet
The magazine section of the Sunday New York Times today had an interesting article entitled "Google's Gatekeepers: Censooooooor?" that looks at how Google deals with censorship on the internet. The article discusses how Google - or specifically, a few people at Google - exercises extraordinary power over global speech online. A number of specific incidents both in foreign countries and the US, where Google (which also owns YouTube) decided to remove content, are presented.
