eye opening

If Google with high altitude balloons and Facebook with high altitude drones do succeed in giving the entire developing world internet access some governments will do everything in their power to suppress it. ¬†Governments aren’t too keen on free flow of information so I’m sure there will be censorship at some level (I think at least Facebook’s plan internet is beamed to cell towers where the traffic could be monitored).

The other problem I see is HD quality video of how fucked up the Gaza Strip is isn’t going to put a smile on Israel’s face. ¬†I think it would be plausible that the Palestinian territories could have their internet jammed or banned.
