State of Interner Censorship

One of the speakers asks the audience early on 'Do you think Internet Censorship should be allowed?' and gets about half the crowd showing hands. I really cannot understand that sort of response, clearly there are things we don't want people to see, but I can't support a blanket censorship system to block that content.

If there was a way to block really dangerous material, without risking blocking completely reasonable material I am sure that is what we would be implementing.

The slides for the presentation are here, there are some other slides here.
