These countries are as efficient as hacktivists when it comes to controlling information.

The Social Media Learning Curve in 2011

from Sysomos Blog by Mark Evans

As we head into 2011, social media is firmly established as something that most companies should embrace. It?s a ?when? rather than ?if? proposition given social media?s potential as a new and different communications, marketing and sales platform, as well as the dynamics of the competitive landscape.

Geographies of Internet Cultures

from Savage Minds: Notes and Queries in Anthropology ? A Group Blog by Adam Fish

And given the political environment in the region, there?s also no reason to assume that the same couldn?t happen in Azerbaijan as well, especially as whole networks of activists, and what they say online, could be monitored and revealed if privacy was compromised.
