Riding China's broadband wave: Kids Don't try this at home

".....her way of dealing with bureaucracy and censorship in China's constantly changing regulatory environment was to 'never ask for permission, only for forgiveness afterwards.' "

Well that approach to publishing on the internet seems to be working for one online publisher in China but I don't think I would be advising everyone in China to try it.

Internet dissent is looked upon poorly by the Government and can draw lengthy prison sentences as has been seen with the many jailing of internet users over the last six months.

But with the rapid growth of the internet in China (it apparently is easier to get an internet connection than a water connection) rules will undoubtedly be pushed to the limit, happily for some not so for others.
