    Thanks for this reminder that China exists and Chinese web surfers exist, too. In my own various web pages' visitor logs, I almost never see evidence of Chinese surfers visiting my pages.

    I hereby hypothesize that this is either because (A) my pages have been blocked by China's censorship mechanism, and/or (B) I just need to translate my pages to Mandarin.

    I suspect however that it's the former, because my pages are personal pages hosted on Comcast, which means it's a grab bag of content so Chinese censors probably decided to block it all rather than risk Chinese surfers seeing pro-democracy attitudes or such.

    Try China's AFFECT on the internet. This gives about 38,200,000 hits. This may be what you are looking for.

  • Samurai says:

    Correction,
    A poster of 007 is Japanese one, not Chinese one.

  • maverick says:

    Search "the Greate firewall of China" and you may find the main reason why we cannot contribute to the internet

  • B-man 2.0 says:

    Damn , I leave my computer for a few hours and there are all these other posters. What's this world coming too? I had such a good time this morning.

    Thank Wal Mart et al... American Big Shot Companies for making China what it is today...an imperialist dictatorship that will sell missles and nuclear technology to the highest bidder or lowest...for that matter...all manufactured in China through technology hijacked/courtesy of the US and your American buying power...egg roll, anyone?

    Wait pay back time is coming for our ignorance as they switch to
    the Euro and dump American dollars like a cold potato. C'est la vie.

    Wait pay back time is coming (for our ignorance & stupidity) as they continue to dump American dollars like a cold potato in favor of the Euro. C'est la vie.

    Holy crap - where DOES it leave us?!? Argh, sorry - had a mild panic attack when the screen went blank...

    Lucky the good ol' BBC can help - good piece on "Beating the Great Firewall of China" from Newsnight's Geek Week 2.0 last week - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/newsnight/6241879.stm#china

    Massive jumps in Chinese internet use/presence pretty much inevitable - the internet is now part and parcel of basic infrastructure. As always, the internet, and users, will adapt.

  • jame says:

    Googling the phrase "china's effect on the internet" and finding only a few links isn't as significant as it would seem. Try googling "united states' effect on the internet" or "america's effect on the internet". Zero links. That's apparently just not a common sentence construction.

  • hey i like china's culture! and japans too, i wish we would import more of there culture. or they would export more

  • Christine says:

    The URL Link I posted to my name is to a CNN article published today about China and the internet.

    It seems like they think that its got the addictive powers of heroin. And that its a bad thing. Take a look.
