Censorship in Boston

April 17, 2008

It seems the Boston free WiFi downtown isn’t so free. Here’s what one person found while attempting to use their network. From his article:

“Disturbingly, I could not access many government web sites that inform me of my rights and responsibilities as a citizen, the punishments for various crimes, or available government services.”

You can read all the gory details on this MIT website.

My thanks to my friend at Mentilucent for bringing this to my attention.
