Jordan: Internet freedom – the beginning of the end?

Advocating for personal freedoms and a continued open Internet in Jordan, Ahmad Humeid, designer, brand architect and web entrepreneur, blogged at 360east: “Over the past decade, Jordan has been steadily building a reputation in the region as the Silicon Valley of Arabia. Scores of web and mobile start ups are mushrooming in the country. Social media companies are on the rise. A vibrant social conversation is evolving in the country.
