(Un)Happy non anniversary: June 4th

nothing happened

(source: Techcrunch blog)

Today is the 20th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square ‘incident and several high profile Internet sites have been blocked in mainland China. These include Twitter.com, Flickr.com, Live.com, and Bing.com… That is what I would call a heavy-handed censorship…….. And it also clearly demonstrates the power of social media, and the power of the internet. My thoughts are for this mysterious man and all the people who suffered that day in 1989.
