Google's Blogger Service Unblocked (again) in China


"Google Inc.'s free Web log service, Blogger, is once again accessible from Beijing without the use of a proxy server, indicating that apparent government efforts to block the site have been lifted.

Access to Blogger was restored on Thursday. The site has largely been inaccessible from China since late 2002, when government censors apparently blocked access to Google's search engine and other sites. Last year, Blogger was accessible during a three-month period that stretched from mid-October until December, when the service once again became inaccessible."

To be more specific, is accessable, but sites hosted by blogger (i.e. sites with a blogspot address) were inaccessible.

I host on my own server, so I have no problem. But it was a pain for all those blogspot users.
