Internet & Networking Since it's weekend, let's start with some good news we can all be happy about. The United Nations has declared internet access a human right, and has called upon all nations to not instate any laws that have the power to cut people off the internet, with France and the UK being singled out because they passed three strikes laws.

It is not a human right to be on the Internet. The UN, once again, just boggles my mind on how stupid and ineffectual they are.

It probably shouldn't be required, but some schools, jobs, bills (taxes?) can't be done without the Internet. So while it's true you could in theory do it the old-fashioned way (snail mail), I'm not sure anymore that's really even available, much less fashionable. Sad to say.
