China Continues to Build The Great Firewall
The Lost Laowai blog has updated its list of blocked website in China. New additions include Friendfeed, Vimeo and URL shorteners Bit.ly and Post.ly, to just name a few. These sites and services join Twitter, YouTube, WordPress.com and TypePad blogs, Facebook, Tumblr, and a bunch of other sites where you can speak your mind. See the post for more on this.

I feel sorry for the GFW, since it’s a pity for our country. And I am also sad for GFW, since it makes me hard to surf online. But anyway, I think the situation will go on well soon, since NO CHINESE will allow the country go one bad.
