In a wonderful irony, the Dutch advisor to Kofi Annan on gaining control of the internet in the World Summit on the Information Society scheduled to finish this week, has quit.

The conference is being hosted by Tunisia. Professor Cees Hamelink says Tunisia is guilty of human rights abuses and he thinks the choice of Tunisia shows the UN does not take "the information issue seriously."

Of course they do, Cees. That's why they are trying to stifle free speech by limiting the growth of the internet. But first they have to stifle free speech by those in Tunisia by oppressing those who protest.
