Online Free Expression Day - Reporters without Borders

I have a few colleagues that are card carrying members of 'Reporters without Borders'.

In all honestly, I never thought much about it, or knew a lot about the organization.

Well, today has been declared Online Free Expression Day by Reporters without Borders.

It's a fascinating group with a specific mission. At times, a very difficult and controversial mission. (Be sure and check out the piece about UNESCO withdrawing support for the 'event').

Take a little time today to visit the website. See what you think.

There's probably a lot that you will agree with, and very possibly, one or two initiatives you won't. That's the position that I found myself in.

Regardless, it's a brave effort that has been embraced by many around the world.

Online Free Expression Day runs 24 hours beginning today at 11 AM Paris time (GMT +1).
