Information wants to be blocky

If we do have to live in a dystopic cyberpunk political satire, at least we get to have an Uncensored Library by Reporters Without Borders built in an online video game. Check it out (from minecraft) at Articles from The Verge, TechCrunch and BoredPanda, with pictures for the minecraftless amongst you. Video, too.

"In many countries, websites, social media and blogs are controlled by oppressive leaders. Young people, in particular, are forced to grow up in systems where their opinion is heavily manipulated by governmental disinformation campaigns.

But even where almost all media is blocked or controlled, the world’s most successful computer game is still accessible. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) uses this loophole to bypass internet censorship to bring back the truth – within Minecraft."

It certainly looks impressive! It's a neat idea and it does feel very cyberpunk. Overall, I like it.
