Strengths And Weaknesses Of The Great Firewall Of China (The Atlantic Monthly)

James Fallows over at the Atlantic Monthly has done an excellent article on the Great Firewall Of China called "The Connection Has Been Reset". He finds many weaknesses with it (apparently it is easily circumvented) but finds that the major strength of the Chinese effort to censor the internet is the social pressure -- the chilling effect -- it creates. Definitely worth the read.
