What if the world block IP from Indo?

9 04 2008

It’s happening. Lately Indonesia blocking several sites like YouTube, Metacafe, Rapidshare, Multiply, etc. It’s because of those sites contain Fitna movie. Well that’s too bad, because of only one movie the whole sites are being block. I wonder why? Is there no other way out? Is it the only way?

I wonder to myself what will happen if the world (web) block IP from Indo.

  1. No more IM like Y!, MSN, Google Talk, etc.
  2. Viruses are everywhere because the antivirus could not get update.
  3. The news on the internet will be the same as in the newspaper or TV.
  4. No more “helpful” wikipedia.
  5. Internet business will be limited to Indonesian people.
  6. No more new software. Only wait from local programmer.
  7. And more to come.

Is it what we want to be? Internet will not be the same again. 😀

Recently fitna movie become popular especially at Indonesia. Not because it is a good movie but it’s a controversial (according to a lot of people) documenter movie. Department send an ‘ultimatum’ note to block site who has fitna movie. Those sites including YouTube, Rapidshare, Multiply, Metacafe, Myspace, etc. Some of the ISP at Indonesia already block some of those sites and more to come.

The latest news said ” ‘Fitna’ Ada di Google “. Is the department going to block Google too?

Is it the right way? Is there no other way? Do we have to block all the services only because of one movie?

Please find another way. Please.
