« Skypecast with Isaac on China's crackdown | Main | China Update: more on blog registration and censorship »

June 10, 2005



We have seen today in Europe the airing of the May 31st CNN 25 World Report Conference special "Blogging: The Fifth Estate". You were great and I wrote about it. I couldn't believe that Christiane Amanpour was there too. Is she thinking about starting her own blog?? Nah, no chance.

I think it will air again on Sunday, June 12th at 1900 CET. This will kill Wolf's show over here, which is no problem for most viewers. Perhaps CNNI could replace Wolf Blitzer with a Blogger show in the near future??

Take a break, you deserve it. Send Ethan to the conferences next time 'cause he just loves to travel...:-)


Are you sure that all the internet communications are monitored closely in
China? Given the size of the users, I don't see this is a doable task.

I have been doing emailing to China from time to time and I wonder if I should watch out what I say in these emails if this is the case.

By the way, I tend to agree with Kristof's conclusion that internet is making it very hard for the government to have the control over people's access to information, something that it has done very successfully to many traditional media, such as TV and newspapers, for a very long, long time.
