Clarification: I should have been clearer, and said that, in a glitch, they are blocking the access. Our parent company has rules restricting access to Web sites. But at BusinessWeek we have exemptions. So, apparently there's a hiccup for the moment.

Another glitch!! Before you get all anti-French The person in question is British working for a British accountancy firm, who lives and work(s)(ed) in France. The hint is in her name "petite anglaise".

You guys seem to have the same reading comprehension issues that Scoble has. This has very little to do with France
