ANNALS OF TECHNOLOGY—HAMLET IS A VIOLENT PLAY.

HAMLET IS A VIOLENT PLAY. This BBC article reports on how: “A man using the British Library’s wi-fi network was denied access to an online version of Shakespeare’s Hamlet because the text contained ‘violent content'”. The blockage resulted from the use of an internet filter. I saved this, and I realize that I was impressed that an internet filter could figure out that there is a lot of killing in the play.
