Blog block: messages to members of Sci-Tech-Info-Comm. committee
|I'm not sure if making contact the member of the Science, Technology, Information and Communications Committee is any efficient, but it's what I've done this morning (until my clicking finger started to ache). A couple of posts down is the list of the members and their websites (I've left the emails that I'm aware of out of the list), of which I've cleared now a bit more than half. Here's the text, pretty much the same I've been sending before with some modifications. I've only changed the name of the receiver. Again, unashamed use of my nationality and academic "position". |
한국의 해외 블로그도메인 차단에 대해서 핀란드에서 연락드립니다
A Korean friend of mine posted one of my messages to a Korean language Mac user board; here's what kind of replies it has gotten.
Seeing for examples some of Kevin Kim's latest posts (here and here) around the subject, targeting politicians really may not be too effective, as the whole thing is apparently done under the cordial and cooperative relation between the Ministry of Information and Communication and the Korean ISP providers, with guidance provided by the Information and Communication Ethic Committee(ICEC). All the power to the committees!
Still, it's ironic to read from Chosun Ilbo, that politicians are using more and more blogs and cyworld instead of "traditional" homepages.
Just for the comparison, the home page of the Finnish foreign minister Erkki Tuomioja; how simple, for Koreans perhaps shabby. I've heard he takes care of it himself. But the contents are of very high quality, and the booktips (in Finnish) is full of insightful reviews of non-fiction. And it's the only personal homepage by a politician that I ever hear being quoted in the news here.
