[liberationtech] thoughts about Telex?

One of these days (if it hasn't already), our entire debate about ICT4D,
liberation technology and what not is going to be neatly incorporated in the
agenda of powerful States, corporate players and "development" organisations
pushing their own agendas in a post-Cold War world.

State censorship is bad, but what about corporate censorship?  Why do we
voice outrage only/mainly against blatant clampdowns in communication rights
in Third World countries, but not the sophisticated global means that Empire
uses to effectively control what we say and how we say it, without us as
much as even being aware.

Thanks for raising these issues Katy and Dod.
