The Internet Isn’t Just For Protestors – It’s For The State Too
March 23, 2011 § Leave a comment
A brilliant extract of Evgeny Morozov’s talk at the RSA. How governments in Thailand, Iran, Saudi Arabia and China are using online tools to suppress protest, and rather than having to torture you to see your protestor network, they just look at your Facebook friends.
Some lovely little visual jokes too (mice using mini-humans to control a computer, ‘Mous’low’s heirarchy of needs etc.)
Full talk here.
