Library Blog Banned in China

Brenda Coulter writes today in her blog, No Rules, Just Write, that her blog is blocked in China and gives a link to a website that checks URL's to see if China has blocked it. It's kind of fun to plug various URL's into the Great Firewall of China's test page to see what's considered subversive enough to be banned in China. As Ms. Coulter points out though , there are more serious issues to consider here, namely the right to free speech and free access to information which is of paramount importance in a democracy like the USA.
And yes, this blog is blocked in China. Go figure.
