"As someone who has encountered the familiar (and polite!) red banner that greets you when you try to access, for instance, Flickr from Dubai"

Very interesting indeed. I'm particularly thoughtful now about civil society business again... all last semester during my seminar on civil societies (historically and philosophically) I kept thinking about the internet as a medium, especially when we got talking to global civil society; it definitely had real conceptual allure for me. Interesting to see places where certain particularly novel civil society structures can arise which would face overwhelming struggle in physical form, be it from logistical or repressive reasons...

very cool!

Hey in Dubai orkut has been banned...was not sure if even facebook they've banned. How sad for people there might be feeling....well good for people who can still use facebook, Will be so horrible if i can't access facebook. Infact i came across this blog which says that you can access facebook on mobile through sms without internet.

This is fascinating stuff, Richard. As someone who has encountered the familiar (and polite!) red banner that greets you when you try to access, for instance, Flickr from Dubai, and who has many colleagues and friends in FB who live and work in every part of the Middle East, I know how much many of them value Facebook.
