Clinton blasts China, others for Internet blocks
By The Post's technology correspondent Cecilia Kang:
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called Thursday for unfettered access to the Internet around the globe after several incidents of online censorship and cyber attacks have presented new questions for the role of technology in diplomacy.
"We need to create a world in which access to networks and information brings people closer together and expands our definition of community," she said.
Clinton's remarks were made in a speech at the Newseum in Washington and have been planned for weeks. The issue was highlighted after Google's announcement last week that it might withdraw from China after an alleged cyber attack aimed at gathering information from the e-mail accounts of human rights activists.
