The Death of the GFW? (Probably Not)

UPDATE: Sadly, it seems like the party is already over. That makes the “installing new software” theory seem like the most likely contender.

Again, we can’t confirm this, and it seems as though it MUST be temporary, but there are reports that the internet, or at least large parts of it that have been blocked for a long time, are now unblocked.

From Chang Ping’s blog:

I’m not sure of the reason [these websites are unblocked] at the moment, but anyway it’s very pleasing, consider it a New Year’s present.

Chang Ping also notes that in the future, he’ll be referring to Liu Xiaobo as “L XB”, presumably in hopes of avoiding being reblocked.

C.A. Yeung’s blog has more information and we won’t bother repeating it, but suffice it to say that at the moment, no one seems to know what exactly is going on.

So turn off your VPNs and see what’s blocked and unblocked where you are!
