China's Crackdown on Internet

china internet cafe

The crackdown, christened "Operation For Tomorrow," is aimed at Web sites offering unregistered playing platforms or services for gamers that can be downloaded.

Unlicensed Internet cafes, known as "black Web bars," will be closed down and supervision will be tightened over legal cafes, the report said.

Online pornography will also be attacked under the crackdown, the report said.


The Chinese Government has a special relationship with the Internet.

Like most such measures, the crackdown seeks to increase government supervision and control over services for vulnerable groups.


Probably a creative manner of censorship by the Chinese government.

It will be interesting to see how the Chinese government keeps track or censors their olympic visitors who may be using computers and cell phones etc. to relay messages from Bejing about China during the Olympics

I think Internet addiction ties into other addictions already present. You should see the compulsive posting on message boards about prostitution. There are tons of sex addicts out there who call it their "hobby" and believe the message board is a sacred "community" for them: http://www.emiliedice.com/compartments/?page_id=12
