Great Firewall Of China

by Andrew Price

October 19, 2007


What do cnn.com, google.com and good.is have in common?

They're all banned in China. We've never felt so subversive.

You can see which websites our friends in the "Middle Kingdom" can't see, and test them in real time, at Great Firewall of China.

Some of the outlawed sites are a little baffling. Asahi.com? nhl.com? What's wrong with beer and hockey?

Addictinggames.com though: we understand that call. That site's dangerous.

For some back story check out Internet Intervention, Rebecca McKinnon's piece on China and search engines from Issue 005. If any single piece got us banned it's that one.
