/...Microsoft has shut the blog site of a well-known Chinese blogger who uses its MSN online service in China after he discussed a high-profile newspaper strike that broke out here one week ago.../This concerns me... Freedom of speech is a right. Microsoft benefits from this right... and yet can pull a stunt like this. We need to protect our right / ability to speak the truth... speak fact.

I could be flippant and say "Boycott Microsoft - use Apple" but its bigger than this. We have to take a stand... Microsoft should have taken a stand...and they have failed! Don't boycott them... pity them! and support freedom of speech...and support Amnesty International. More info here: http://www.amnesty.org/
