    A sad day for computer geeks and Google fans in Iran. It will be interesting to see how this will pan out. If I were an Iranian citizen, I would be more than a bit hesitant to accept email services from the government - and in turn, giving them full access to my private information.

    eww... That sux. A little bit of warning would have been nice. I have a brother and sister over there and both of them use G-mail. It's our preferred mode of communication with the time difference and all.

    The satellite dealio has been going on for years. There was even a time when they would go around and take large antenna's that could pick up TV from other countries off of peoples roofs. It goes and comes.

    Proxy is not a solution. How many proxies are there? They can be blocked too. The only solution I see is getting rid of that government/regime.

    That's what they seem to be afraid of... After all, why else would a government restrict a populace's ability to communicate with each other and the outside world? The more communication roadblocks there are, the harder it is to organize.
