Libya — The Big Question For Bit.ly and Deck.ly

Libya has begun blocking access to Facebook in Tripoli, the country’s capital, and is cutting off electricity and access to the Internet as a response to anti-goverment protests.

If the access to specific sites are blocked, people can use proxies, but if the Internet lines are shutdown or the power is turned off, the story is different all together. Hence, this could not only impact bit.ly and deck.ly but all domains registered within Libyan control.

Perhaps the revolutions in the Middle East will allow people to rethink government sponsored/hosted domain registration.
