CIPR RA Anthony Hoffmann on Internet Censorship and the Wisconsin Capitol

Amidst the political controversy surrounding Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's budget repair bill, there have have been allegations of possible Internet filtering at the Wisconsin Capitol where an opposition website was apparently blocked on the Capitol wifi network. This obviously has implications both in terms of the current dispute, as well as information policy more broadly.

CIPR would like to highlight PhD student (and CIPR Research Assistant) Anthony Hoffmann's excellent analysis of what really (seems) to be happening - "Access and Protests: Internet Censorship and the Wisconsin Capitol."
