Just a quickie!: A Boing Boing post drew this to my attention:
"Wales said censorship was ' antithetical to the philosophy of Wikipedia. We occupy a position in the culture that I wish Google would take up, which is that we stand for the freedom for information..."
Is this a slip by Wikipedia originator extrodinaire Jimmy Wales?; Does he already consider global society to be "the Culture" (alt. link) as described by Banks? Hehe, yay! + Yay for not being the Chinese government's bitches (which is what the quote is talking about).
