YouTube and MySpace are being banned by the U.S. Defense Depatment and they will not be accessible from any departmental computer systems anywhere in the world. Officials claim that this is not a case of censorship but merely a way to save bandwidth and conserve system resources. This comes a real blow to troops stationed overseas since they will be cut off from accessing friends and family in this way.

Implications - The inability to communicate with friends and family over a prolonged period is always a tough task and even more so for those troops stationed overseas. It will be interesting to see what the long-term impact of this decision will be.
