'Great Firewall': China's model for a censored Net

'Great Firewall': China's model for a censored Net: "Part of the Chinese success has been co-opting American tech companies with the lure of its lucrative consumer market. Microsoft blocks bloggers from posting politically sensitive words in Chinese; Google shuts down for several minutes when a user in China looks too many times for forbidden words like 'Falun Gong'; and Yahoo recently admitted turning over private e-mail information that helped lead to the jailing of a Chinese journalist."

Even in the blogosphere, 'freedom ain't free.'
Bloggers beware!
