Here are a few selected media stories about the ONI’s reports:

…and here is a separate news item in the Guardian UK on Murdoch’s moves into China with a special version of MySpace.

Additionaly, I did a recent interview with SAP Online on the psiphon project.

IGF Forum Athens

I participated in the Internet Governance Forum today, on a panel with fellow panelists Ambassador David Gross of the United States, Julien Pain of Reporters Without Borders, Fred Tipson of Microsoft, and others. I was checking in through a videoconference connection, which made it a little difficult to hear what my fellow panelists were saying, but it was an interesting experience nonetheless. It appears that the event has been picked up by Associated Press, however, and so has been reprinted in numerous publications, such as here, here, and here.
