The World Wide Web - sometimes it doesn't appear so...
The World Wide Web - sometimes it doesn't appear so.
You receive an email offering a service or product. You decide that you would like to sign up for it, you click in and...you receive a comment, "this is not available in your area"(the pacific area). Something to do with US tax laws?
You read about China forcing Yahoo to give up information about a Chinese national who has sent emails, or about a blogger who has some how offended their Government. Privacy? Yahoo cooperates fully with that particular government.
Sometimes the World Wide Web is not realy the World Wide Web.
The World Wide Web should be outside national boundaries, unless it is registered in a particular country and really offends that country's laws on security or treason It should not be manipulated by any particular government.
The World Wide Web is really the World Wide Web or it isn't!
What do you believe?
