Video: Google briefly blocked in China

25 06 2009 – Internet users in China were briefly unable to open Google’s main sites late Wednesday, and the company said it is investigating.

According to many reports, the Chinese authorities have temporarily blocked access to the Chinese version of Google Search, Google.cn, as well as Gmail, at 9pm local time. The sites seem to be available again now, but this is a clear sign that even Google is not untouchable anymore when it comes to Chinese censorship.

The dispute between CIIRC (China Internet Illegal Information Reporting Center) and Google – the only company usually considered to be too big to be blocked – began recently, when Google Search started appearing in CIIRC’s reports as a service that disseminates pornographic and vulgar information.

Although Google has promptly promised to do everything in their power to satisfy CIIRC’s demands, it seems that it wasn’t fast or resolute enough, as two of Google’s most important properties – Google Search and Gmail – have been blocked for several hours. The block has been lifted, but Google is no longer untouchable; next time, it might get blocked for days, weeks or months, just like so many other sites. Furthermore, according to some sources, the Chinese censors have even tried to frame Google, artificially pushing some inappropriate results to the list of the most common searched terms.

In some ways, this is good news. Blocking Google Search, the site that merely indexes and provides links to content hosted elsewhere, just goes on to show that everything on the Internet is connected in such a way that it’s nearly impossible to censor one part without censoring the others. Earlier, sites like Twitter, YouTube and Flickr were blocked; with Google Search blocked, Chinese censors are showing their true intent: they’d ultimately like to block every part of the Internet that’s not under their strict control.

It’ll be interesting to see Google’s reaction to this latest slap in the face from CIIRC. Surely, they will try to further cripple Google.cn (they already removed the option to search foreign websites), but at one point it might become pointless, as the service will no longer be what it’s supposed to be: a search engine. Will Google.cn turn into a site that links only to sites approved by Chinese censors, or will Google finally muster the courage to say enough is enough? We’ll see.

Video: Green Planet Episode 9 – ICT As a Tool

25 06 2009 – Although ICT accounts for only around 2.5% of total greenhouse gas emissions, they have the potential to be used in reducing the other 97.5% in other sectors of the economy.

image ICTs could deliver approximately 7.8 GtCO2e of emissions savings in 2020, equivalent to 15% of all emissions. ICT-enabled energy efficiency alone translates into approximately $950 billion of cost savings.

Studies in various countries, generally supported by or associated with telecom companies, suggest broad potential for ICT to cut energy use and carbon emissions.

Video: Iran Election Crisis: 9 Incredible YouTube Videos

20 06 2009 – It’s no secret that social media’s played an important – maybe even historic – role in the Iran election protests that have swept the nation into discord and disarray. Many social media companies have made a contribution towards opening the flow of communication within and out of Iran, YouTube included.

Thousands of Iran-related videos are being uploaded to YouTube every day, revealing first-hand accounts of the crisis to the world. Some are incredible, some are eye-opening, and other shock you to your very core. We’ve included ten of these incredible videos, in a chronological order that helps provide context to the crisis in Iran. Be prepared, for these videos can evoke some very strong emotions:


1. Saturday, June 13th


This was one of the first Iran election protests videos to be spread around the web. Translate, the video’s title is “Saturday 23 June.” In actuality, this video was taken on Saturday, June 13th in what we believe to be Tehran.


2. June 13th: Riot in tehran streets after election day


This now well-known video has over 400,000 views. You can see the green masks of the Mousavi movement onn clear display.


3. June 13th: BBC – Protest against Iran election results


The BBC was on top of the Iran crisis. This popular video is an incredible on-the-ground report.


4. June 14th: Iranians protest against election results, police intervene


This is one of the first videos that shows the police getting involved in breaking up the crowds that formed not long after the elections. There are cries, screaming, running, burning wreckage, and many angry citizens.


5. June 14th: Iran Election Protest in Paris


The protests have not just been inside of Iran. There have been demonstrations in cities across the world in support of Mousavi’s Green Movement. This well-produced video comes out of Paris.


6. June 17: Protesting in Silence – Tehran


Silence.


7. June 19th: Poem for the Rooftops of Iran


From the video’s description: “A woman speaking about the state of her country while filming the rooftop shouting of “Allah-o Akbar” in Iran on Friday June 19th”

The poem and the background noise make this video evoke emotions that are unlike most of the other videos coming out of Iran.


8. June 20: Wounded Girl Dying [GRAPHIC CONTENT] – Neda


WARNING: The following video is very graphic, disturbing, and involves the death of an Iranian woman.

DO NOT WATCH unless you feel capable AND are old enough.

image Warning: this video is extremely graphic and troubling. Viewer discretion is strongly advised – if you’re at all uncomfortable with violent scenes, you should not view it. Please also view the description below, and be aware that the clip is absolutely unsuitable for minors.

We remind you that we include this clip because we believe in free access to information, however unpleasant: your decision to view it is entirely your own.

The video has now been picked up by TIME.com, USAToday’s On Deadline blog and Sky News. An LATimes blog, meanwhile, claims it is “becoming a rallying symbol for opponents of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.” In all, Google News counts 26 news articles mentioning Neda at the time of writing. Thousands of blogs have commented on the clip.

Among the myriad Tweets and Facebook messages, could it be that a YouTube video becomes the galvanizing moment in Iran’s troubled election? And as some outlets declare this the “Twitter revolution“, did they overlook the power of online video to shape world events?

At 19:05 June 20th
Place: Karekar Ave., at the corner crossing Khosravi St. and Salehi st.

A young woman who was standing aside with her father watching the protests was shot by a basij member hiding on the rooftop of a civilian house. He had clear shot at the girl and could not miss her. However, he aimed straight her heart. I am a doctor, so I rushed to try to save her. But the impact of the gunshot was so fierce that the bullet had blasted inside the victim’s chest, and she died in less than 2 minutes.
The protests were going on about 1 kilometers away in the main street and some of the protesting crowd were running from tear gass used among them, towards Salehi St.

9. June 20th: Tehran Tazahorat


You can’t help but be amazed by the sheer number of people in the streets. THis video has been passed around a lot recently in social circles, and for good reason. It’s incredible, just like all of the videos here.


Iran is a nation in chaos, and as we monitor the situation, we must realize that social tools provide us with unfettered access to the situation.

Sometimes, that access can be disturbing. The flip side though is that we can truly know what’s going on in Iran. This way, we really stay informed.
