      It's 11:52. Do you know where your cyber-rights are? The Digital Doomsday Clock offers a huge chunk of information and resources based on the looming threat of censorship. Groups involved in the debates are extensively listed, as well as domestic situations all over the world. China, for example, has regulated links to the Net by liquidating and re-registering all networks. The closer to midnight the time, the more intense the struggle for freedom in cyberspace. Essential reading if you're sick of commercial and government infringements online.
