Putin booed, some Russians get it.

You have probably already seen this, but I'm more than happy to add my two cents to it...

Not that this is likely to result in a Putin loss at his next power grab in the upcoming Russian elections, but it's good to see that the Putin attempts to put the glasnost and perestroika genies back in the bottle, aren't going to be as successful as he hopes.  In the era of YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, the whole closed society doesn't work.  In an era of technology and the need for communication of ideas to keep up with international competitors, shutting down those and other sites isn't a good model to follow either.  Maybe in Pakistan it's feasible to try, but not in an industrialized economy.
