Police, censorship and other blogging news…

LOTS of blogging stories in the news over the last day or two. A new report suggests that a quarter of British internet users keep a blog and more than half of that number share their online musings with the public… PC Pro acknowledges the growth, but reckons the mainstream media are well ahead in terms of authority… North Wales Police Chief Richard Brunstrom has launched a blog, becoming the UK’s first blogging Chief Constable… Internet giants Yahoo, Microsoft and Google have been challenged to reveal which words they have banned from blogs in China… Meanwhile, English blogger ‘La Petite Anglaise’ is suing her former French employer for firing her… she was ‘dooced’. And finally, the Indian Government has shut down some blogs in the wake of the Mumbai train bombings – although the blogosphere is striking back.

  • The “blogosphere is striking back” sounds like a good title for a movie “The Blogosphere Strikes Back”starring ? 🙂
