The Great Firewall of China (and how James Fallows gets around it)

James Fallows is a blogger over at theAtlantic.com who is great source for anyone interested in the Beijing Olympics. However, he also wrote this article on how he bypass the restrictions placed on him by the Great Firewall of China:

James Fallows (November 16, 2007) – The best $39.99 I have spent in China (China)

I often wondered how restrictive the firewall is: I have a better idea now.

It’s a very interesting post, as are most of his other posts on China. I’d be curious to know what people who know China much better than I think of his writing.
