Free-Speech Via Blogging Gaining Traction in China

I try not to blog about blogging too much, but this caught my eye.

China, a country whose government is dancing with the twin sisters of individual freedom and state control, seems be allowing a bit more freedom to its people via the Internet.

According to the BBC, Xinhua, the official Chinese news agency says there are currently 60 million Chinese bloggers with a predicion of 100 million by 2007., a major Chinese Internet search engine, says there are about 2.3 blog sites sites per blog author in China.
