Localization is a global system that in effect, may foster censorship and propaganda. How so? Let Martin Anthony walk you through his understanding of this seemingly invisible firewall of free information. His experience with topics of the internet started, in Vancouver, prior to the dot com era. He sat on committees (Praxis and AES) that discussed copyright protection long before it was an issue.

In later years, he became manager and Editor in Chief of the English Internet department of a privately owned Turkish news agency in Istanbul. There he worked with journalists from around the world. Martin later hosted a TV talk show in Istanbul where he interviewed scores of guests ranging from a former Whitehouse security chief, to world famous musicians.
