China Blocking Blogspot With Cisco Help

You’ve probably read that China has blocked all of blogspot with their nationwide firewall. (Who knows what else you can’t get from inside there, too, but I think we can assume it’s alot, although this is particularly bad, methinks, since it is a very large number of personal sites that have been blocked…so it is definately just “all thinking” that is not allowed. Also if you think only China has a nationwide firewall, guess again. Saudi has one too. Who knows who else.

Anyway, Mr. Beattie has an interesting post about the fact that those firewalls are Cisco. You think only the Gap is guilty or violating human rights? Guess again.

Update: scripting news has the meta linkage; check it out.
