most of the time, I hate living in America

but not all the time...From International Herald Tribune:

"China encourages Internet use for business and education, but tries to block access to material deemed obscene or politically dangerous.

It has the world's second-biggest Internet user population after the United States, with 111 million people online.

China launched a campaign in February to "purify the environment" of the Internet and mobile communications, Xinhua said.

The government will step up research on monitoring technology and issue "admittance standards" for blogs, the report said, without giving details."

I'm sure we'll be here someday, but for now at least, it's nice. Mock-democracy beats no-democracy, i suppose...
