CNET interview of Geoffrey Nunberg

Geoffrey Nunberg, linguistics expert, is the subject of an interesting interview on CNET. Well worth reading for all the insights, though I note it here for the following comment about censorware:

That's very different from software that just says, "You can see this, you can't see this," and doesn't involve human review of the process. Although these (filtering) companies claim they use human review for all sites, that's just not true. And it couldn't be done, given the size of the Internet.
