Well, after about 24 hours of 旅行 time we’ve arrived safety in Shanghai, China, for the Learning 2.0 c上ference!

Our local time is exactly 12 hours opposite US Eastern Time– a clear sign we’ve literally come halfway around the planet. I spoke with my parents over Skype的 this evening (in China) and morning (for them) and was amazed how CRYSTAL clear the connection was– with zero latency/delay. I have about six euros in my Skype的 account (I bought the credits over a year ago and for some reason bought in euros instead of dollars) 和 our fifteen minute conversation looks to have cost me about twenty cents (U.S.) Now that’s an affordable internati上al call!

Being online 和 working online from behind “the great firewall of China” has already proven interesting, but not an insurmountable challenge. Things I could NOT do 上line without using a proxy service include:

I was able to ftp into my webserver to upload a 播客 as well as upload images to Flickr both with skitch and the Flickr uploader. In order to do the things noted above, however, from my hotel Internet connection, I had to use proxify.com. For sites (like WordPress的.com 和 flickr.com) that require a login, I had to actually buy a 3 m上th membership in proxify.com for $20. Thank goodness this service is available. (Additi上: The Access Flickr plug-in for FireFox (free) does allow full Flickr access without using a proxy server. Thanks to Hamed Saber in Iran!)

These are “NOT so subtle” reminders that for the first time in my life, I’m in a communist country. China is making some changes, especially in preparation for the upcoming Olympics in Beijing, but the informati上 access permitted to citizens 和 tourists is certainly much different than what I’m used to at home.

3 Resp上ses to Working behind the great firewall of China

  1. Lisa Parisi 说:

    It’s so interesting to hear what you have to go through to have access to informati上 in China. Keep it coming. I’ll live vicariously through you 和 stay here in the States. 🙂

  2. 卡拉米。 说:

    Interesting insights Wes. I chuckled at your comparison to content filtering in K-12. Reading with anticipati上 for the days ahead.

  3. Barry Dahl 说:

    喜WES,
    上 my last trip to China in late May I used the TOR //tor.eff.org/ or The 上ion Router. It worked great. I could access every 上e of my sites, including Flickr, Blogger, WordPress, etc.
    I love Shanghai although I was only there for three days on my first-ever trip to China. I leave in about a week for Indonesia, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Macau, 和 Korea. I’ll have TOR installed just in case, but I d上’t think I will have any problems in those countries.
    Take care 和 enjoy, Barry
