So there I was, like any red-blooded American male, running my daily searches on guns, booze, drugs, and porn, when suddenly Chungahwa Telecom’s net nanny swooped in to save me from my dark side. My screen turned Aqua and I was presented with the net nanny warning — in the form of an angel, an interesting globalization moment.


Apparently the company is demoing a net nanny service slated to begin June 1 and had bamboozled my wife into signing on. A phone call quickly solved the problem. The company insisted on talking to my wife before they turned it off; apparently a way to prevent teenage porn freaks from masquerading as a parent and getting the service turned off.
