Comment: Bah, sensationalist propaganda! (Score 1) 118 118

Everyone who does anything technical in China (I'm talking of Chinese people here), knows to use a VPN to tunnel out to Japan or somewhere similar. If it's "illegal" you certainly wouldn't know it.

I recently returned from 6 months in Beijing where I reliably used my OpenVPN connection to an Amazon EC2 server whenever I needed something "special". Don't get me wrong, the great firewall is a pain in the ass, and they don't have the infrastructure (intentionally) to support that much traffic flowing in and out, but it's the same intarwebs we all use.

Real computer scientists don't program in assembler. They don't write in anything less portable than a number two pencil.
