The Chinese firewall is actually only one part of the large information control that China has forced upon it's people. This project is called "Golden Shield". Most people in China find a way around the firewall.

However China's information control doesn't stop at just the Internet. During the SARS scare, China tried to keep information about it contained but was unable to do so because they did not consider the use of SMS messaging and similar technologies. This has only given them more determination to control all information through the Golden Shield Project.
