Earlier, Michelle Malkin requested photoshopped/altered Google logos from bloggers in the attempt to make a point about Democracy and freedom. But what bloggers, supporters and readers should do instead is to try and find ways to provide important web searching techniques on how to do search queries to avoid triggering China's national firewall. When doing search queeries in China using certain words or phrases will promptly disconnect the unfortunate Chinese web user from Google or the proxy itself. This would depend on where those Chinese web users are in China and how and the kind of search being done. Eyes are literally everywhere.
Bill Xia of Dynamic Internet Technology Inc wrote in 2004 on the Chinese search engine query results that he and others have done for public release over the internet. Bill provided materials and tips on what web users to expect from using the Chinese Google version in doing searches when done inside and outside of China and how to avoid such firewall problems. Bill has a reason why he is doing this.
Bill Xia immigrated to the U.S. from China during the late 1990s. Over time he saw how the Chinese government kept a tighter and tighter control over Chinese web users inside China. And because of that frustration, he and few others started Dynamic Internet Technology as way to help Chinese users get around the Chinese's firewall.
Bill Xia left China for the US in the late 1990s. He keeps up with events in his homeland, mostly online.He has been amazed by the rapidly growing number of people in China who can join him in cyberspace.But he has also watched as Beijing tries to keep tighter and tighter control over those Chinese web users. Mr Xia says he got fed up with the way the Chinese authorities control access to information on the web"I started realising the media controls in China. And then I realised the internet presented a great opportunity to get around those media controls," he said. In 2001, Mr Xia and some other US-based volunteers started Dynamic Internet Technology.The company helps Chinese web users get around China's firewall.
Bloggers and supporters from around the world outside of China should look to this new company, Dynamic Internet Technology, as the answer to overcome China's severe restriction on free exchange of information, truth and facts. Google's latest faux pas, seemingly so, may have actually helped this situation. Rather than to heap disparagements on Google’s latest endeavor, even though they are a bit of a hypocrite on what they've done lately, we are probably facing the best opportunity to help ensure on our ability to forcibly export free exchange of information and ideas into China.
Now, if the U.S. Embassy can do the same thing in Cuba with a five-foot tall electronic message board up along the Embassy's windows as the United State's "pipeline" to spread the word of freedom and Democracy, why not show Chinese web users the same thing by giving them the tools and information they need to subvert the Chinese's Google version via the internet? Here's the link of an English version about Cuba's "crisis" from China's People's Daily Online. A little play of irony here.
Google can just gag on this for all we care. However, this is a pipeline we’ve been waiting for. This could be the silver lining in the sky that is now being cast as a darkening horizon.
