The Great Firewall Again

It seems journalists arriving in Beijing for the Olympics are frustrated to find many websites blocked by my favorite organization, the Chinese government. Welcome to daily life for Chinese citizens - where even taking pictures of earthquake damage can earn you a ticket to a re-education camp. So much for the much-vaunted post-quake Glasnost in the days after the quake; that genie got quickly put back in the bottle. With luck there will be more websites listing ways to get around the Firewall like this CNET entry.
