Is the tech economy down because we're all fucking around on the Internet during work hours, or are we fucking around on the Internet during work hours because the tech economy is down? This is one of those chicken/egg questions that keeps me up at night. -- Master Squid

So, as a much-over-18-person who works at home and has a big fat personal DSL
pipe to the Innurnet, I really rarely worry about Web censoring software. After
all, why should I care? Doesn't affect me.
But I realize that there are tons and tons of people out there without a good
connection to the Web they control. They depend on mucked up organizations like
their companies or their local libraries to get data. And they're getting
fuX0red by censorware!
Considering that the Federal Government has just mandated censorware for all
public libraries and schools (!!!), it's really a little disturbing. Why the
hell would you go look for stuff on the Internet if it was "good" stuff? Who
wants that kind of info? What you need is info on BAD stuff -- bad politics, bad
sex, bad drugs, bad ideas, bad explosives. That's what it's all about, baby! Not
goody-good floral arrangement pages and Britney Spears fansites!
Anyhow, this PeaceFire.org site has lots of cool info on disabling buggered-up
censoring programs. They even have a brilliant motto: "It's not a crime to be
smarter than your parents." Hell, of COURSE it's not a crime -- it's practically
So go check out PeaceFire.org and get around some roadblocks on your path to
Innurnet info freedom. Screw the mind cops!
