The internet suffered a serious blow at the hands of the Chinese censors recently. Among the casualties were Flickr, Twitter, Hotmail, Live, and hundreds of Chinese sites. Add this on top of Youtube, Blogspot, and WordPress. It’s almost impossible now to blog in English in the mainland. Somehow Wikipedia has remained untouched. I’m still waiting for Xanga to come back on the air, after being muzzled for over two years. Who knows, maybe the whole internet will go down. All I can say right now is thank god for Hong Kong (photo below)  

In other news, I’ve started my own photoblog, which is being updated almost daily. So if you want to follow my photographic excursions, see here: www.shenzhenphotos.com
