there were one network administrator, and he was saying than he is frustrated that Armenia did not ban free wifi spots. when i’ve asked why, he answered that there is a lot of crime happening because of free wifi spots, and he gets a lot of requests, even got request from interpol.

well, i believe it’s a way of thinking of policeman, not system administrator.

policeman wants to simplify it’s work, and putting everyone to cell they can decrease the probability of crime. by banning open windows they can decrease probability that some thief can use them. but it’s not a way of thinking of administrator. well, i believe it should not be.

when i came to work where i work now, i’ve learned a sentence from my colleagues: “we are not police, we are administrators.” i like it a lot.

“Russia is further constraining access to the internet and freedom of speech, with new laws regarding public use of WiFi. Nikolai Nikiforov, the Russian Communications Minister, tweeted that “Identification of users (via bank cards, cell phone numbers, etc.) with access to public Wifi is a worldwide practice.” This comes on top of their actions recently to block websites of political opponents to Russian president Vladimir Putin, require registration of prominent bloggers, and more.
