I’m celebrating, of sorts. For the first time in maybe a year, this blog and others on the typepad.com host can now be seen within China. They are no longer blocked.
Why did the blocking suddenly end? I have no idea. Someone just flicked a switch. One could go nuts trying to figure such things out. Of only one thing am I certain: The ban wasn’t targeted at my blog. I’m just a bystander in all this. There must have been an aggregate of questionable blogs in the censors’ eyes that caused the blocking.
And how long will this Prague Spring last? I’m totally uncertain. It could be a few hours, maybe longer.
On an unrelated matter, check out this website in Canada on six Chinese-made car clones that are knockoffs of famous Western models. Scroll down a bit to see the side-by-side photos. Hat tip to the always interesting danwei.org for pointing the way to this site.
