Microsoft Shuts Down Chinese Blog

Perhaps Mr. Gates should put as much effort in providing software for people to thwart dictators as he has put into Xbox. Arguably, that would e a more lasting contribution to well-being of humanity.
Microsoft Shuts Down Chinese Blog - New York Times: "Microsoft Corp. has shut down the Internet journal of a Chinese blogger that discussed politically sensitive issues including a recent strike at a Beijing newspaper.
The action came amid criticism by free-speech activists of foreign technology companies that help the communist government enforce censorship or silence dissent in order to be allowed into China's market."
