Let a Thousand Blogs Bloom

blogs bloom.pngReporters Without Borders has released a handbook for helping startup blogs on how to stay anonymous and avoid government censorship. On protecting your emails the handbook says;

"Most governments now have the means to spy on electronic messages. The “cyberpolice” in repressive countries use it to spot and arrest political opponents and many Internet users have been thrown in prison for sending or even just forwarding an e-mail. A political dissident in the Maldives was given a 15- year jail sentence in 2002 for corresponding by e-mail with Amnesty International. An Internet user in Syria has been in prison since February 2003 for forwarding an e-mail newsletter."

I learned about it via DeadParrots and RConversation.
