Recent widespreading of Fitna clip in YouTube made the President himself to order of removals of the clip in YouTube. The Ministry of Information has sent a notification to YouTube about the removals, and will block the access from all of Indonesian ISPs to YouTube site if YouTube doesn't comply. Currently some ISPs had already blocked YouTube since last week.

A couple hours ago there's a dialogue between the minister of Information with some bloggers in his office. They also talked about the bill to be passed about the electronic transaction bill. Some minutes:
