Fighting Child Porn; an excuse folks use to censor free speech

Found this via Richard Stallman's site.

It is about internet censorship in Germany.


Germany is on the verge of censoring its Internet: The government – a grand coalition between the German social democrats and conservative party – seems united in its decision: On Thursday the parliament is to vote on the erection of an internet censorship architecture.

What is it with Germany and such stringent laws? Don't they want to move with the times?

It's annoying that they use the old excuse "fighting child porn". Ye, apparently all these measures don't make the children any safer: look at South Africa and India and what is happening to children there (note: foreign tourists are involved); also look at all these freaky people locking up their own children in vaults and basements.



Creepy and cool at the same time

Ooh check out this artist!

Kinda like the surreal feel. My favorite is the last one, the pink fish hug.

The artist is Alex Pardee by the way.


There might be a Dr Who feature film.


At least that's what Film School Rejects say.

Making a splash

Google Labs is developing something called Flipper; it's a news viewing app.

Quote from TechCrunch:

While we have yet to use it, what looks nice about it is that you can not only browse by sections, but also by sources, keywords, and most importantly by elements such as “most popular” and “recommended.”

Take that, stupid newspapers!
