Free speech and the internet

The Global Voices Online blog has this short piece about efforts to ensure the free flow of information in a globalised world.

"Reporters Without Borders has taken a delegation of cyber-dissidents to the U.N.’s preparatory meeting for the World Summit on Internet & Society this week. Global Voices is naturally concerned about efforts by governments that do not uphold free speech to interfere with internet governance. RWB has come out with an excellent set of recommendations that the U.N. should uphold if it wants any credibility at all when it comes to internet governance"

Check out the guidelines. They are very simple and (potentially) very effective.
