[News] Censorship in China Goes Up a Notch

Hash: SHA1

Tor partially blocked in China

,----[ Quote ]
| On September 25, 2009, the Great Firewall of China blocked the 
| public list of relays and directory authorities by simple IP 
| address blocks. Currently, about 80% of the public relays are 
| blocked by IP address and TCP port combination. Tor users are 
| still connecting to the network through bridges. At the simplest 
| level, bridges are non-public relays that don't exit traffic, but 
| instead send it on to the rest of the Tor network.



China: Are Tibetan Bloggers Being Silenced?

,----[ Quote ]
| Quite alarming to report that all of the most popular Tibetan language blog
| hosting sites (except one) have been inaccessible for almost three weeks now.


Survey - "Show us the code" says China

,----[ Quote ]
| Elsewhere in the world, the survey confirmed the general trend that open
| source software is now mainstream for enterprises. In North America, 41 per
| cent were already using open source, with almost another ten per cent
| planning to adopt or already adopting. France continues to lead the way in
| Europe, with 67 per cent already using open source, followed by Germany at
| 60.6 per cent and the UK trailing at 42 per cent. Attitudes to open source
| adoption repeat the pattern with those who feel benefits outweigh other
| issues coming in at 47 per cent in the UK, down from 54 per cent in 2008,
| while in Germany, 62 per cent believed that to be true. Another problem for
| the UK is that 22.4 per cent of the respondents in the UK say they are still
| monitoring developments in open source, but have not yet begun evaluating it.


China's internet: the wild, wild East

,----[ Quote ]
| The government frequently cites pornography as the most important reason for
| China's controls on the Internet, but right now, the censors are particularly
| nervous for political reasons including the recent riots in Xinjiang, and the
| possibility of something going wrong on October 1, when the People's Republic
| celebrates the 60th anniversary of its founding.
