How Open is Your Internet?

Published February 16, 2011 - 15 Comments

Mashable posted today an interesting article on how open (or not) internet connections are within countries.  By “open” they are referring to the level of censorship that takes place on the internet.

While I find it interesting that Canada and the USA rate as “some censorship”, I’m not really surprised.  There are some things that should be blocked.  Where I was surprised was with regards to Australia being listed as “under surveillance”.  I’m not sure what’s up with that.  A quick look at some of the other countries listed in the same category, and you can kinda piece it together… but Australia?  What are those crazies Down Under hiding?

I think I’ll ask a couple of them before I allow my mind to rest easy… my parents’ trip is coming up very soon, and I don’t know if I’m comfortable allowing them to go into Communist Australia…
