It may seem like I'm beating a dead horse but I've made it a mantra to report on individual annoying incidents of web censorship as I experience them, as a way of articulating just exactly how impossible it is to use the web as a tool for anything in China. Last night I was reading advice blogs on selecting camera lenses to photograph professional diving competition. I made the mistake of clicking on a photo blog with Blogspot as a host. What happens when you click on a Blogspot link in China? You get sent to the penalty box. Your whole internet connection is cut off for what probably only amounts to two minutes but which is an exceedingly aggravating two minutes. Seriously Net Nanny, what the fuck? I ended up closing down my wireless connection and re-opening it in order to continue surfing- using websites that those great denizens in Beijing deemed suitably safe.
