Ai-Wei-Wei Says...

The artist Ai-Wei-Wei says censorship can never defeat the Internet. The State (any state, but he means China in particular) needs the Internet more than it has reason to fear it. If it shuts the Internet down it shuts itself off from the world and hobbles the creativity of its own people. Coming from him- with his honourable history of challenging and being slapped around by the State- I find this encouraging.
