What does it feel to be a Zemedkun Tekle? Poor man, he has to defend the dumbest action by his bosses in the dumbest way possible. Today OpenNet Initiative, an Internet watchdog partly funded by my favourite billionaire, George Soros, accused Ethiopia of blocking opposition websites and blogs, after running tests which produced overwhelming evidence that the sites were blocked. Zemedkun's reply?
We may have technical problems from time to time. But we have not done
anything like that and we have no intention of doing anything like that.
What is it really, really, really like to have a job where your main responsibility is to act idiot?
