Humanist readers may be interested in an article that appeared in today's
Wall Street Journal (13 Feb. 2006), entitled "Chinese Censors of Internet
Face "Hacktivists" in U.S."
It appears in the print edition and the online version (if you have a
subscription to the online version).
The article mentions that Congress may be about to revive a bill to
establish an Office of Global Internet Freedom.
The bill is short on specifics, but you can review it online at:
If government interest grows, so could funding that may be of interests
to Humanist readers.
Hope you are having a great day!
