Wonder if masses of people getting PCs, and become able to get on the Internet, will eventually become too much for the Chinese government censors....

I was thinking the same thing. One of the things that cracked the Eastern block in the 1980s was people being able to receive broadcasts that showed freedom and prosperity in the West. It does make you wonder what impact this will have on folks who have long been isolated from the outside world.

Don't be so sure, there are major parts of the internet you don't see/read regularly. For example English is no longer the most popular language on the internet.

If there is that large a world out there that you can't see, perhaps it is possible for the firewall to be effective.
