Remember when an URL linked to something static on the net ?
Sure, an URL could be actually a script behind that allows for a more dynamic page.
But when the script is used to discriminate users for a supposedly free site like YouTube, I'm getting kinda annoyed.
This video is not available in your country ?
So Web 2.0, besides all the AJAX thingy, also brings a wide-spread encouragement to use a proxy to hide your identity ? Is this a social construct to teach us about security and privacy ? Or just a degeneration of what the Internet was supposed to be ?
