Access denied map

Sami Ben Gharbia of GlobalVoices has created the Access Denied Map, an interactive Google Maps mashup that provides information about the censorship targeting various online social networking communities and web-based applications. The picture above which I made from the video of his post in GlobalVoices shows countries that censor participative Web and user-generated content. For those who are living in free countries it is good to know the level of censorship by looking at this map; it will surprise you. 
If you want to know which web pages are censored in China to get an idea of the level of censorship, you can take a look at the great firewall of China. Well; personally I do understand censorship as I come from a country that is listed as one of the leaders in press suppression. Also personally I've experienced censorship as the small group weblog which I used to write in, with an average of 300 readers per day was censored inside the country, let alone other bigger websites.

Thanks to Sami, and good luck to everyone fighting for freedom of press.
