China Lifts Wikipedia Blockage


All web surfers have probably heard about Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia. This website run by non-profit organization is a helpful site especially for those who want to access important information for research or just to know some information. The fact that information is provided free on site makes it very beneficial. Its service is very unique because the users can either add or edit any of the information cited.

But according to reports Chinese authorities blocked access to the English and Chinese versions of the Wikipedia due to the controversial contents regarding China. Blockage started late last year, but it seems Chinese authorities have had time to think because the mainland China can now once again access the site. Throughout this issue Wikipedia has stood its ground in refusing self-censorship.

The blockage lift is very beneficial because of the wealth of free information that can be obtained form the said site.
