As a child, I have always loved putting together torn magazine pages my father used to shred, just to see what they withheld. This was far too colorful and interesting to let go. This is an illustration of my friends which you can find titled and annotated on her blog

Twitter and Google are helping to end China's stranglehold on information and accelerate the process of democratization
Twitter is largely blocked by China's "great firewall" (GFW), which prevents Chinese people from accessing certain sites.

Twitter, which lets people send bite-size messages to large groups, allows the Chinese to quickly disseminate urgent news or even uncomfortable facts.
