Censorship Alert! Google Introduces Localized Domains For Blogspot

Google has introduced local domains for its popular blogging service. This means that this Blogspot blog will be viewed at, 'canadu.blogspot.com' in most of the world, but if you are seeing it in India it will be, 'canadu.blogspot.in.' The reason that Goog's is doing this is so that they can restrict access to blogs on a country by country basis. It is similar to a move that Twitter recently made to be able to block access should a government request it to do so. Web 3.0 will no doubt be a place of walls and barriers.
