China moves toward "real name system" for Blogging

I’m facinated how China is regulating the Internet. There is a lot of critics and companies like Google and Yahoo have been roasted over the coals for how they co-operate with the Chinese government. I do believe they are doing right when you consider a staggering 446.7% growth from 2000 to 2006. I can’t even begin to comprehend this kind of growth living in South Africa. The future of the Internet and the Web is all about user generated content. And blogging is the perfect way to allow that. Now in a new article China is moving toward a “real name” system. This will be perceived by the West as controlling or limiting the expression of bloggers. When you are dealing with such a vast number of people in China, its understandble for me to regular and create some boundaries for online usage. What do you think about this article?
