Global Earth Day for the Internet

It was about time and Susan did that few years ago as founder of the September 22 is the official date to celebrate the Internet, an amazing tool that changed our life into an online life. We have to show appreciation and respect. But looking all over the planet, we will see that some countries are really suffering, either from infrastructure and access technologies limitations i.e. China is a huge country, difficult to cover or the government is banning access to certain Websites limiting the access to the Internet - example of Turkey and YouTube.
An interesting article is posted from Susan discussing the Internet status, especially in the USA, where the President George W. Bush promised ubiquitous high speed Internet access for 2007. Instead speeds are slow, prices are high, and competition is nominal.
