MT unblocked. A journo called to say that the Cabinet has ordered the MCMC to lift its ban on all blogs and websites, including Malaysia Today.
1. I told her that's a smart thing to do because the ban only made the MCMC a laughing stock.
2. The government will now need to renew its pledge that it will not, ever again, censor the Internet. And hope that the world believes it.
3. A show cause letter to the MCMC is necessary to ensure that the people there don't act unilaterally and shame Malaysian again.
4. Finally, I told the journo that the Cabinet should also get the New Straits Times Press to take down the "firewall" it has imposed on my blog.
