Anonymous Blogging

The guidelines are here at anoniblog - interesting.  I note it here because I was just thinking of this idea this morning. What if we packaged the fastblogit phenomena into a self installing product could it possibly be used in countries where free speech is supressed?  The real challenge is in places like China where the ISPs are controlled and may be blocked by the government.

Perhaps   ... One thing this brings to mind is that the character set should be an instillation variable.  I'm not exactly sure how that works, but in all the pages serverd from fastblogit i think it show
meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
which might not be the correct one for China or France.  Like if someone could tell me how to serve a page in the French style, it would be greatly appreciated.

The double-byte character sets like the ones used in the orient, Japanese, hongul, Chinese require 2 bytes for every one used in English. Wikipedia describes it here under DBCS and internationalization.
One interesting question is how we could possibly moniter for Chinese Spam and maliciousness.

More on the state of affairs of Chinese censorship can be found in this Google News search this morning. In particular the first article shows what's up there.
I have always been an advocate of voting with my pocketbook.  This distinction makes a difference between boycotting & just buying from others.  Whenever I can, I spend my money where the people who produce the items I choose to buy show in their practices & the way they treat their employees things which I am aligned with.  In this case of the Chinese censorship I recommend buying stuff other than "Made in China" .  Just because it is cheap doesn't mean that it is a good deal for the whole world that you buy it because of "the market" and "competitiveness" & all that stuff we cherish in our own economy.  It is time for us to use our monetary votes as well as our political ones
