On the same topic, it is funny how much of the Western World criticizes Iran/China for their draconian control over the internet, yet countries like the United States and Canada are guilty of trying to implement similar strategies. The Harper government I believe is still pushing to have ISPs log websites frequented and visited for a longer period of time and allow this info to be diverted to law officials without requiring a warrant. I don't doubt in twenty to thirty years that the current internet will evolve into something like Cable TV; a pay per website type service comprised of "domesticated" websites that have been deemed acceptable by the current ruling government. No more needing to be creative or ingenious to be successful, just become friends with the regulatory commission/current ruling government and you will be set.
