Online do-it-yourself encyclopedia Wikipedia, every lazy blogger’s best friend, will not load in Shanghai without the aid of a proxy server. The site worked yesterday. Most assume the free information source has been blocked by the Chinese government. We can’t imagine why. Shanghaiist hopes this is just a temporary glitch, but then we just read this and now wonder if we should care.
So what website is next on China’s block list? We doubt this would happen, but they must be tempted to pull the plug on Google Maps. No one likes a website that doesn’t adhere to the one-China policy.
