While I was reading that article about Google developing technology to eliminate or at least 'hide' all child porn on the web a rather unsettling thought occured to me.
What if someone decided to use that technology later on to remove some other 'flagged' content from the web? Maybe content that is offensive or damaging to a certain group of people but benefits another group of people? You see where Im going with this?
I wonder why this is necessary, if anyone finds child porn on the net you report it and the authorities handle it from there. Why would we trust a corporation to effectively censure the entire web for whatever 'noble' purpose? Censorship never works anyway, it only pushes the criminals further underground and really in the end only hurts the people it purportedly aims to protect.
