I already wrote about how Italy is worsening its delay on Internet take-up by forcing users to authenticate before using any wireless network. It is much more difficult than in other countries in Italy to find a cafe with wifi. Cafes should ask people the ID card and register them before giving them the wifi password. Andrea di Maio blogged on this as well.
The Pisanu law was made in the aftermath of 9-11 as a way to track down possible terrorist activities. Italy was the only country to have such a law and the most unbelievable thing is that it has been renovated every year since then.
This is why I joined the facebook group fighting against this (hat tip alberto cottica).
