I hope we're not seeing a trend.
First Myanmar cut Internet connectivity so the world wouldn't see as much of its brutal crackdown on protesters.
Now there are indications that China may be redirecting Internet traffic over Google, Microsoft Live Search and Yahoo and routing it to Baidu, apparently in retribution for the U.S. honoring the Dalai Lama.
Just what the world needs, another petulant superpower throwing a tantrum.
Why would China redirect search traffic? It doesn't seem like an economic strike as much as a ham-handed attempt at censorship.
It's also a terrible day for the FCC to propose rules that would further concentrate the media in the U.S.
