Selling your version of the World through the Internet

Writing about web page http://www.newscientist.com/article.ns?id=dn7757&feedId=online-news_rss20

"Researchers at OpenNet, a joint venture of the University of Toronto in Canada, Harvard Law School and the University of Cambridge, have found that China's Communist Party-run internet service providers (ISPs) routinely filter out content they deem politically unacceptable. They also appear to hire fake commentators who post pro-government statements on blogs and message boards.

By remotely accessing computers within Iran via a number of routes, OpenNet also found that 34 per cent of the 1465 weblinks they tried were blocked. Some 15 per cent of blogs and 30 per cent of news sites were inaccessible – as were 100 per cent of porn sites."

I knew history is written by the winners. But now fake commentators who blog !!!! ..wow what next ?

Propoganda has gone high tech ;-). Watch out, learn to sift through the rubbish and read between the lines !! Maybe Andy Grove was referring to the 21st century society when he said "Only the paranoid survives".
