From the New York Times, more on China’s Internet censorship. While the title–China’s Censors Tackle and Trip Over the Internet–suggests a rather random approach to the censorship, the real point is that there is not a great amount of central control from the Chinese government.
As I suggested here a few weeks ago, the censorship is more local, and everyone running a server seems to be encouraged to block whatever they want.
The metaphor of the Great Wall continues to be appropriate here, as the Great Wall was built during different periods and by different leaders, only later joined as a single wall.
