Cyber battling

22 03 2011

PPT readers will find an article at Southeast Asia Globe of interest. The article we refer to is “Cyber Wars” by Laura J. Snook. It draws inspiration from events in Egypt and assesses the question of whether the internet, despite state censorship, can be a “democratic platform” in Southeast Asia.

Some might be optimistic, but as readers will note in the article, PPT is less so, mainly because of the capacity of state’s to control and censor and for less than progressive forces to gain control of this media.

The article raises good questions and several important issues.
