Internet & Networking It's official now. The signs had been there for a while now. While the west bangs on about the importance of freedom and democracy, they don't actually want anyone to have too much of it. The US, France, and the UK have jointly pretty much declared war on freedom on the web.

It also counts about 125 million catholics, which means a decidedly western -- as in "European" -- culture. Portugese and Spanish (their languages) seem less than indigenous as well. C# (the programming language, not the musical note) is apparently South American, but its originator seems to adapt quite smoothly to Redmond culture.

Western it may not be, but different it is not.
