Media_Wired reports on Chinese blogger slaming Microsoft

The editor in Wired News, a famous news website, referred a story on Chinese blogger slaming Microsoft. Isaac Mao is the main figure here if not the only.

"Existing Chinese blog-hosting companies strike that balance by policing their members' blogs for postings that might get the company and its users in trouble: The phrase "China needs democracy," for example, would set off a red flag. But "democracy" itself is not a dirty word, says Mao. Likewise, text about human rights abuses outside of China is not banned."

Different political systems have brought different policies, which doesn't mean it is not right for the two systems to learn from each other, or even know from each other.

Something will happen in short time.
