    Ways to circumvent the Chinese firewall:

    1. http://elgoog.rb-hosting.de/index.cgi
    A google mirror site that is kind of hard to get used to, but gets the job done.

    2. http://www.webaccelerator.google.com/
    Sources tell us (but we have yet to confirm) that downloading google web accelerator will allow you to access most block sites (except for, ironically, google news). It also lets you view the cache of blocked websites.

    3. http://peacefire.org/circumventor/simple-circumventor-instructions.html
    This is a program that allows you in conjunction with a computer not behind the firewall to access the blocked sites. It operates through email.

    4. http://www.masternewmedia.org/free_speech/China/
    A movement where a person in an outside country hosts a blog for someone in china. Because it is small and anonymous it will escape the view of the censors.

    5. http://tor.eff.org/
    This is another circumventor program.

    6. http://www.rsf.org/rubrique.php3?id_rubrique=542
    This is the Reporters without borders handbook for cyber dissidents. It includes many techniques for blogging anonymously.

    7. http://www.adoptablog.org/
    This is another adopt a blogger program.

    8. http://www.stayinvisible.com/index.pl
    This program generates a proxy server that allows you to bypass the firewall.

    9. http://www.stayinvisible.com/index.pl
    This company makes a variety of anonymous web surfing products that could be used to get around a firewall.
