Thumbs down on this one, China!
Quote of the day:
One wonders how long this dike holding back free flow of information in China will last..it's unfortunate that the government has a whole lot of thumbs.This from a foreigner-in-China blog (one of many) reacting to several Chinese free blogging sites having been shut down recently. You can read the entire post at zero dispance, which has some links to follow for background. I expect this story to get a lot of bandwidth in days to come.
A deeper and wider-ranging commentary, Bad News Rising, with an entire nexus of background links is on The LongBow Papers.
Mainer, New Yawka, Beijinger, Californian, points between. News, views and ballyhoos that piqued my interest and caused me to sigh, cry, chuckle, groan or throw something.
