China Eases Ban On Wikipedia
From All Headline News:
"After a nearly yearlong ban, China has eased restrictions on the access to the English-language site of Wikipedia, the reader-edited online encyclopedia. However, the access to the Chinese version of the site remains "spotty," a Chinese-American researcher said in his blog this week.
Andrew Lih, who has worked at Columbia University and Hong Kong University, said that Beijing authorities began opening up access October 10, and that access "is not uniform across the country, and depends on specific municipality and ISP (Internet service provider)."
Citing two Chinese contributors, Wikipedia on its Website confirmed the news but said that Chinese version of the online encyclopedia remains inaccessible."
