(Not just?) Banned Books Week

Doug Johnson over at The Blue Skunk Blog is advocating for Blocked Bytes Week, pointing out that we need freedom to read more than just books.

What do you think? Are your computers filtered? Find out if your local library has filters on its computers and if you don't think it should, make your voice heard! Write letters to the editor and to the library board supporting your freedom to read anything (not just books).

Also check out Karl Fisch's response and the questions he's asking about internet access in schools.

From The Fischbowl: do we best prepare our students for the unfiltered world they live in when they step off the bus? (Or open their cell phones? Or pull out their laptops with their own unfiltered connection to the Internet?)
