Blog Censorship?

18 Jul

This article in Economic Times this morning claims that Govt. of India has blocked a few blog sites by instructing the ISPs. This seems unbelievable. Even though blogs help content to be syndicated effectively, putting the same content on a webpage or a bulletin board is not that rocket science. In essence, if Government is blocking these blog sites to reduce impact of terrorists, then they will find another way anyway. Why target a few blog sites that you know of? If the article’s claim is true, then these blog sites did more good than harm during the Mumbai blasts situation, at least based on what we know.
