Rebecca MacKinnon reports that despite some hopes a couple of days ago that the Typepad block had ended, it has since been confirmed that all Typepad blogs are now inaccessible in China.
She has also reported that Blogsome, the free blog service from WordPress, is also blocked.
Finally, she’s written a new article titled, China’s Internet: Let a Thousand Filters Bloom. Rebecca’s outrage at the US firms that facilitate the censorship is palpable, and she obviously has Cisco in the crosshairs of her keyboard.
Richard Burger is the author of Behind the Red Door: Sex in China, an exploration of China's sexual revolution and its clash with traditional Chinese values.
