White House opposition likely dooms anti-China Internet bill

,----[ Quote ]
| Earlier this week we told you about the Bush administration opposing a bill 
| that would slap extensive regulations on technology companies doing business

The dark side of Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| In the Free Software world, well, we are quite used to enjoy freedom. For 
| example, we do the arguable thing of having a big number of different  
| distributions, FLOSS licenses, desktop solutions or software applications. 
| Sometimes this is positive, they compete, they learn from each other and they 
| try different approaches. It makes things work better.   
| However, sometimes we have no clue of how to use our freedom, really. Or even 
| worse, we use it to actually limit it.  



Yahoo!, Microsoft ink web pact with Chinese government

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft and Yahoo! have signed a pact with the Chinese government
| that "encourages" the big name web players to record the identities of
| bloggers and censor content. So says Reporters Without Borders, an
| organization that fights for journalistic rights across the globe.  


Chinese Internet dissident committed to mental hospital

,----[ Quote ]
| "It is not acceptable that Chinese authorities use such methods to silence
| citizens who have merely peacefully voiced their opinions", expressed the
| organisation in an announcement. Apparently authorities have not abandoned
| the practice of punishing those who have exposed the abuse of power and
| defied censorship by compulsorily committing them to mental institutions.    


Is Microsoft tinkering with Live Search results?

,----[ Quote ]
| Is Microsoft filtering out from its Live Search results those it
| considers “undesirable” for the company?
