In the wake of the recent violence in the U.K., British prime minister David Cameron has suggested banning Facebook, Twitter, Blackberry Messenger, and other social networks because people are using them to talk about and possibly organize riots.

Free flow of information can be used for good. But it can also be used for ill," said Cameron.

Huh, seems like only a couple months ago is was all these "repressive regimes" shutting down Twitter during social unrest. I guess now it's just the responsible thing for a beleaguered kind-hearted government to do.
