The Great Chinese Cyber Wall

China hits blogs where it hurts | The Register

Things were not too good before, but now it seems as if the authorities in Beijing are getting even more nerveous over the potential political impact of the Internet - including the new phenomena of blogging.

Recently, a series of new measures have been announced to control the flow of information over the Internet.

That's a sign of weakness - not the other way around.
