The Internet in China As Seen by a Chinese Internet Policy Advisor

Via Fons, Tim Wu had recently met with Xiong Chengyu, a personal advisor to Chinese President Hu Jintao on internet policy.

"But then why so many controls, I asked him? He said, "to provide room," and to "make development possible." I didn't quite understand what he meant by that. He urged me to pay less attention to the present, to the controls of today, and to think about China's future. I asked, but then what's the long term goal -- something like Singapore, more like Europe, or the United States? He said, no, probably something in the middle, something Chinese, but in the end better."
