Does this sound ridiculous, a perverse #fantasy of some balkanized #Web of the #dystopian #future?  Nope: it’s all true, except that my #laptop is actually an #iPad and my #browser is #iTunes / #iBooks. 


On the Web, the very idea that the right to read a website would vary from country to country seems patently absurd. #Cyberspace is flat, after all, just computers talking to computers. You, the reader, do not need to concern yourself with where these electrons on your screen are coming from, and neither do I, their publisher, need to care where they are going. And when somebody attempts to artificially block those #electrons — say, #China and its #Great-Firewall — it’s the kind of the thing that the #US #Congress and the #World Trade Organization get worked up about
