The anti-social court house network

The Los Angeles Superior Court has a Facebook page, but Facebook and other social media sites - Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube - are blocked on the court house's public WiFi, according to fishbowlLA blogger Pandora Young, who spent the day trying to surf the web as she did her jury service:
Stuck at jury duty in downtown Los Angeles, this fishie is tapped into the web via the courthouse wi-fi. Infuriatingly, they block access to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube, and a number of other worthwhile websites. ... To the courthouse’s credit, they do not block access to Wikileaks.
