And there has been a real chilling effect on the press in Myanmar. The Irrawaddy, which is an independent newspaper, is being investigated. There are people being investigated for Facebook posts that the authorities don't like. So absolutely still dangerous.

Game of Thrones made a huge mistake last week. What is the best way to check your work?

Yes. Game of Thrones left a coffee cup on a Winterfell table. Not a good look. So, process is really the best way. Making sure that there are multiple people looking at your work and editing it, which I'm sure is the case at HBO. But you can still miss things. A trick that I use is changing the font or the layout on an article when I give it a last read. Or you can read it backwards. On video you can play with brightness, color saturation, and you can play just a sound, or just the image. Really anything that will trick your brain into thinking that you're looking at something new and therefore you can have fresh eyes and better see mistakes.
