    Will China be able to hold back the age of information?

    However, I see no way to keep a lid on the internet. Already the Chinese find themselves in a race to keep ahead of technology that bypasses Chinese filters. And there are additional pressures as well.

    If the Chinese government is anything like ours, they won't be able to keep up with technology and hackers.

    It's good to know that you find humor in oppression.

    It's a way to fight the system. I am sure the authorities would be really pissed.

    It is better to be subtle and maneuver under their radar screen, rather than direct confrontation.

    This is why China is moving away from the IETF DNS specification's and will implement its own root domains. Right Now China has to allow everything and then block what they dont want joe blogs to see. When they implement there own dns roots they can block everything and allow what they want joe blogs to see... It will more or less "Break" the internet, and sandbox China...

    What about satelites? They are illegal for private use in China too, but widespread. I would like to know how to use satelites for internet connection.
