Australians asked to help monitor the Great Firewall of China

Amnesty International has developed a tool designed to provide measurements for the extent of Internet censorship in the PRC.

Amnesty International has developed a tool designed to monitor the extent of internet censorship in China, and is asking Australians to help use it.

The tool, known as the China Internet Censorship Index is designed to collect data and monitor the censorship framework known as the Great Firewall of China.

The CICI can help determine exactly which sites are blocked by the firewall. The tool can be used to conduct automated tests via proxy servers in China - measured against a control test checking availability from outside of the country.

There are also Amnesty International volunteers conducting frequent manual tests.

The tool generates a daily index which will be updated dynamically, and can be displayed on badges that can be put on blogs or social networking pages.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
