The end of the MySpace soldier
I wrote a short piece at Northwest Progressive Institute’s blog about the Department of Defense is banning soldier access to MySpace, YouTube, and other sites.
Do you think that this is a big deal? Soldiers will still be able to access the sites from their own computers, but it seems odd to me that the blocked sites are ones that thrive off of user-generated content, which means that they are sites where the site’s participants control what gets onto the site. I guess this is similar to policies at some draconian companies like GM, but I see it as a big brother play to try to prevent soldiers from hearing dissenting viewpoints.
One Love. One II.
