It strikes me that Iran is the historically far oldest, most complex, most important country on the planet about which we in the west are systematically obstructed from accurate information, in no small part through the actions of our own governments.

You ain't just pinging port 25 Thought for the Day: Given the security and reliability of most U.S. government computer systems, Hillary Clinton's home email server probably would have been safer for the entire State Department to have been using.

Lopsided argument in favor of the government’s defense casts doubt on the legal challenge to the law.

Google has built a quantum computer chip that can do error correction. That's a big deal, because without error correction, quantum computing won't work.

Irrespective of Danny's speculations regarding motives, the best mechanism for reaching Google.com from anywhere is still to use www.google.com/ncr ...
Google says the change is meant to help local searchers, but does the Right To Be Forgotten play a role?

I started to read "Google Pub" and was wondering if the pub was in Mountain View, and if the Tied House was worried - then I saw the sub.

Let's make it a bit more intuitive to reach google.com from other countries Thought for the Day: Currently the most universally accessible method to reach the central version of google.com from other countries (that is, to not use regionalized versions that may be subject to government censorship such as the Right To Be Forgotten) is via www.google.com/ncr (ncr == no country redirect). To make this even more intuitive for users outside the USA, it might be helpful if www.google.com/us and www.google.com/usa were aliases to the central version of google.com.

Interestingly, "google.us" does do a country redirect where, e.g., "google.ca" does not.

Read the article and what the documentary producer says. Blocking the film means that India doesn't get to show how far they've come since those rapes.A standard case of censorship without actually looking at the material.
