A paradox, digital divide in some country is a blessing for internet freedom, but for how long would this lasts?
Government of some developing country knows well about internet embedded nuisance for their regime but they do not have any strategy to wholly harness it. They would rather react as they are attacked (arab spring in egypt blacked out Internet for a couple of days) or getting means of blocking it altogether when feeling an urgent threat.
To prevent them from taking Internet as the villain to catch and to imprison for good, we must inform, teach, explain and design strategy how to deliver a good Internet for everybody and above all show that Internet is also good for the regime to make people more aware of what the government is doing for them and that comparison with other countries is free people do not care whether life is better off elsewhere whereas man tends to love what is forbidden whatever this could be.
I would like to discuss further this idea.
