"Rubbish"?

Do you feel you have more information than Reporters without Borders? About Uzbeckistan, Saudi Arabia, or where? In other words, do you have any reason for your comment other than a know-it-all attitude?

I only know of an article I read online about an outbreak of a disease in a chinese college, and they locked down the school and the only way kids could communicate were through their online blogs, so that must say something about them having the internet.

The chinese government censors the internet. Under the guise of "internet access" China is actually just having a big fat LAN party with itself.

Is everyone else reading a different article, or am I the only one who cares about the fact that these people don't get to exercise one of the same basic rights that we do?

This is factually inaccurate. Why can you say Iran has no internet when it does, and say iraq has internet when only the westerners have it?

Get the facts straight and post them. Report accurately before you talk about borders.

Guest
Guest's picture

China has internet too. That picture is meant to show which countries don't have unrestricted access to the internet. I have come across many articles about Iran blocking certain sites because the government didn't like that was on them.

You "hat the isalamic regime"? hat? isalamic?

You sound like an idiot. Islam is a religion. You managed to use the words "I" and "the" correctly, though.

Guest

I wouldn't blame him for his spelling. I wonder how well you can spell in Farsi?

Islam is not only a religion but the governing regime when you live in the theocracy of Iran.

You are the idiot.

Why do you mention Libya as a black hole? Most of the internet is allowed there, hell, even porn is allowed. Just the opposition's websites are censored, and really, who gives a damn about that?

Sep 15, 2009: "the Syrian Centre for Media and Free Expression reported that the number of news and information websites blocked in Syria has increased to 241. They include 49 Kurdish sites, 35 opposition sites, 22 Lebanese sites, 15 human rights sites and nine(9) cultural sites."

It's not trying to say there is no internet butt hole it is trying to say that information does not flow freely there.......

According to this graphic, I think that someone should literally move more offshore servers 'offshore'. I'm really amazed by the 'amount of internet' available in the oceans, and clearly connecting the poles.

Seriously, some graphic designer thought it cute to put WAY too many lines in that image. Try: http://www.cybergeography.org/atlas/more_isp_maps.html

:p

Guest's picture

I think the reason they put so many lines is that they weren't being literal. I'm fairly certain that they were just illustrating that information is freely exchanged between those lines. Also its an ad so you have to think about that too. They were just trying to illustrate that many people in the world are connected to each other, maybe not directly but connected. Also they are reporters and reporters typically value exchanging ideas and information, I mean it is their job. I think thats why there are so many lines because of their value of information exchange. Anyway in those countries, they most of the time get internet access but they often monitor or block what people look at, which I know for me would inhibit what ideas I could communicate. Also getting rid of internet chatting methods is a travesty I think.

SAYS WHO!!!
i'm from saudi arabia... what type of "NEWS" am i missing?

(FYI: if ur talking about filtered sites, then there are MANY MANY ways to bypass those blockades, but mostly they're porn so i'm glad that they're there for the children's sake)

same here :) ... I'm from Saudi Arabia and it's normal ...

most of the porn if filtered (and as you said, that's great for our children)... but everything else can be accessed normally :)

Information does not flow freely in the US either. Try criticizing the administration's policies...you will find yourself fired or arrested (much like the kid from Loose Change)

"Try criticizing the administration's policies...you will find yourself fired or arrested"
Uh huh. Apparently, you have never read Digg's comment threads...nor ever seen DailyKOS, ThinkProgress, etc., etc... On second thought, your very notion (ironically) sounds like something one might read on one of those very sites. (Amongst all the rest of the criticism of the administration's policies.)

God damn, there are alot of stupid people on the internet. It's not about Internet access, you idiots. It's not suppose to be a work of art to appease your delicate gay palettes.

Do you idiots see the black holes?

Black holes = censorship
Censorship = bad
Idiots = bad
Idiots = Black Holes

I love the Saudi reply that yeah, there are blockades but tons of ways to get around them, and they pretty much just block porn. What if others thought this way:

Soviet Russian: "We don't need independent media. Besides, we can watch American TV on satellite if we hide the dish well enough."
Palestinian: "Sure, there are tons of checkpoints, but why do you want to cross them anyway? Only infidels out there."
Chinese: "Yes, we have to get a visa to travel to parts of our country, but it's for our own good. Nothing to see in Hong Kong anyway, it's just like the rest of the country."

Ok... so are people just not able to understand the notion of "freely" flowing information? This is not saying that the internet never reaches these places... just that these countries don't have access to ALL the internet (be it a jpeg on your first webpage or government conspiracy page). The problem here is as follows: YOU don't get the option to choose what you want to see as your country makes that choice for you... Those of you in the US... don't get your complexes complicated yet... our government is instead listening to everything you say.... 2 solutions... same issue...

I have visited both Tunisia and Iran, both of which are on your "list". I had no problems getting online in either of these countries and accessing websites hosted outside of those countries. I was able to access websites via HTTP and HTTPS. I was also able to use ssh from both of those countries back to servers in the UK. So if i had been ultra-paranoid about being filtered or blocked I would have just use an ssh tunnel back to a squid proxy, but as I have already said, that did not become necessary.

This is an inaccurate picture. Cuba has internet, it's filter, but it has internet. I was in Cuba a little more than a year ago, and I was able to access my hotmail from there.
