Flow of Information and Conversation Is Still Not Totally Free

Nope, Blogspot remains inaccessible. Fons in Shanghai still had to use a proxy to view Blogspot sites. "Might be a temporary hole in the wall," he said. Isaac doesn't expect it to become a high priority item on the great nanny's white (unfilter) list.

Meanwhile, Kevin wondered "what can we talk on the internet" on the Chinese internet? He said that another blog host provider in China got a warning from the government because a blogger talked about sensitive history topics. Have the Chinese bloggers reached the limits of their freedom of self expression in the public space?

It seems like trading off 10% of freedom doesn't necessary buys one more room for new kinds of freedom, but makes more people become awared of how big the cage is.
