China alllows access to English Wikipedia

At last some of the protesting around the Olympic games does have an effect

Chinese authorities appeared to have lifted a block on the English-language version of online encyclopedia Wikipedia, but politically sensitive topics such as Tibet and Tiananmen Square are still off limits.

Internet users in Beijing and Shanghai confirmed on Saturday that they could access the English-language version of one of the world's most popular websites, but the Chinese language version was still restricted.The move comes after International Olympic Committee (IOC) inspectors told Beijing organizers that the Internet must be open for the duration of the 2008 Olympics and that blocking it "would reflect very poorly" on the host country.
