wasting bandwidth since 1999

Just a Thought

As we approach the celebration of our Independence Day, a small reminder that we have it pretty good compared to people in other countries.

The Times of India reports that Myanmar government has blocked Internet users from reaching Google.com and Gmail.

Of course, stories like this should also remind us that free and open communication is something that must be defended. Sometimes from people very close to home.

Happy Independence Day.

  3. Comparing the United States to Myanmar is like comparing broccoli to wormwood. You might love broccoli, or just like it, or simply eat it because it’s good for you, but wormwood speaks for itself.
