Default Internet Freedom Report Released; Ranks Estonia as Best in the World

In a report published by Freedom House, a non-for-profit organization which advocates human rights and political freedoms, we can gain an understanding of which countries have the most open Internet freedoms, and which have no freedoms at all. And no, that's no typo in the title. Estonia, a small country in Northern Europe with a population barely over 1,000,000, is considered to have the best Internet freedoms on earth.


You can read the rest of our post and discuss here.

I'm surprised to see that major players in the developed world are not on the list. Countries like Canada and France weren't examined.

Hopefully the United States remains in the green forever.

We weren't examined because everybody just assumes we're too busy with beer and the NHL playoffs. They're pretty much right.

Very cool. A larger pipe for the same amount of money is never a bad thing.

And think, Estonia used to be part of the Soviet Union.Things can change, apparently. It's just slow going.
