How safe is Orkut for my children? Are my kids sharing personal contact information with strangers whom they meet on the Internet? Can I block orkut and other websites like Facebook and Myspace on the home computer.
China plans to require that all personal computers sold in the country as of July 1 be shipped with software that blocks access to certain Web sites, a move that could give government censors unprecedented control over how Chinese users access the Internet.
China has the highest number of Internet users in the world and that explains why American companies co-operate with the Chinese government in implementing internet censorship. WordPress is however different.
Bloggers and journalists in China are using a novel approach to bypass Internet filters in their country â€“ they write backwards or from right to left. The content therefore remains readable by human beings but defeats the web filtering software.
If your company has deployed content filtering software from Computer Associates, you may not be able to access Digital Inspiration at office because they have put the site under "Personal Pages" and that category of websites is blocked in many workplaces.
In a strange move, the US Air Force has cut off access to all external websites that contain the term "blog" in the URL. The official argument is that blogs aren't legitimate media outlets and therefore, shouldn't be read at work.
