Wikipedia, Castro Style
by

Today, Cuba launched an online encyclopedia called EcuRed

Think of it as Wikipedia, Castro style.

Here’s one thing about Cuba’s entry on Wikipedia that Cubans are unlikely find on EcuRed:

Cuba had the second-highest number of imprisoned journalists in 2008 (the People’s Republic of China was first) according to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), an international NGO. As a result of ownership bans, computer ownership rates are among the world’s lowest. The right to use the Internet is granted only to selected people and they are monitored. Connecting to the Internet illegally can lead to a five-year prison sentence.

Think about that the next time you surf the web.
