So Weird

As usual the Internet in China has been acting strange. This Thursday the strange change, one that caught me completely off guard, was that I had more access to sites rather than less.

I went to a coffee shop on Thursday afternoon and without my VPN I was able to access a YouTube video that was linked to in an email. I then tried searching for another YouTube video and I got it — no problem. I tested Facebook, WordPress blogs and Twitter and all these sites were wide open.

Was someone asleep? On vacation? Let go for some reason and wanted revenge?

All I can say is the phenomenon was short lived. I’m back today and the censorship is back to normal.

C’est la vie.
