Agreed! It is a slippery slope.
Twitter, Facebook, BBM (?) lauded in Tunisia, Egypt and elsewhere in the
BBM under fire by authorities in India, UAE and elsewhere, for reasons
BBM, Twitter, and maybe Facebook scrutinized by authorities in the UK,
again for reasons of 'security' and 'public order'.
BTW: In the late 1970s and the early 1980s, in Poland when cell phones
were in their infancy and before BBM, newer and inexpensive fax
equipment was used by Solidarity et al. to organize popular groups
distributed throughout the country. The rest is history.
No judgments. Just parallels.
Except that I know it is a slippery slope.
