No blogging, please, this is the Olympics!

It appears most blogs, even those that seem to have nothing to do with China or the Olympics, are blocked here in Beijing. And this is still after the whole affair last week with blocked Internet access for journalists during the games. Some were lifted, some were not. So you can now access Amnesty International’s site from the main press centre here, but not this blog. Which can mean only one thing – this page you’re reading is VERY hot right now.

So, this will most likely be my first and only post from this fair city. More dedicated bloggers will find ways around this (such as emailing content to a trusted friend to post [thanks to Teddy at The Comical Hat], but not me. I’ll be happy to update from a beach somewhere in Southeast Asia when all the hoopla is done at the end of the month.
