The Chinese censorship threat continues to ratchet up

Ted Samsen of Infoworld is worried that the Chinese are attempting to ratchet up internet censorship yet further. Welcome to the club, buddy. This problem is a big one, and I don’t think it’s going to be addressed without vigorous action. I particular, I suspect that what is needed may be some major efforts in white-hat spamming. Lance Cottrell of Anonymizer has clever ideas along those lines for fighting censorship in the short term, but I think a bigger effort is needed as well.

Google, by the way, is caught in a tough spot and knows it.
