How much of a fad?

Despite broad claims that I’ve already made public, I was scratching my head, trying to figure out how much of a fad censorship really is. I decided to bother a few close friends to gather different perspectives.

I asked them:

- Whether your country has a history of censorship
- Whether censorship has increased in the past decade
- My particular concern is web 2.0: blogging and social media – how have governments reacted to this?
- If you have any direct experiences of or related to censorship that you can and would like to speak about, and would not mind me publishing on my blog, please share.

They were sent to a diverse bunch, and I received responses from people in/from Italy, Canada, Mexico, the Netherlands, and the US.

Some of these are too detailed to mash up with other responses in the same post but I’m trying to edit everything to give it a structure.

I’ll post in a few days to share the wisdom.

And oh: Happy Women’s Day to everyone. Is it just me, or does Holi really kill it for the women?
