Jeez louise. I mean, in the back of my mind, I knew it was only a matter of time. But Beijing has gone ahead and blocked YouTube.
That makes the list of major sites I'd like to visit but can't (without a proxy, and even that doesn't work for the BBC):
Google News (well, not blocked, but acts wonky... Google image search is even wonkier)
My guess is this is a combination of the National People's Congress, China's parliament, which is meeting right now, and the unrest in Tibet. Don't want people watching videos of those pesky Tibetans.
I asked a taxi driver tonight what he thought about what was going on in Tibet. He hadn't heard a thing.
What a farce.
