ZDNet (among many other news sources) reports that Google is inaccessible in China, as the Communist Party expands its control over web content in the country. And it’s no coincidence that a Communist Party congress is upcoming in November, “sparking speculation of a crackdown on Internet content viewed as subversive.” Great. I think it’s a damn shame that no other country has had the balls to make more of an issue of things like this happening in China, to say nothing of the more egregious human rights violations. For a discussion of the Google issue, Slashdot (as always) is a good source.
