Post Google creates censorship map


"The US government asked Google for user information 4,287 times during the first six months of 2010.

During the same timeframe the UK government put in over 1,000 such requests.

This is just two snippets from Google's new Transparency Report, a set of tools designed to show censorship levels around the globe."

Interesting map, as expected the US is #1 in censorship.
