list of sites for news on china internet

simply googling “china internet” yielded an incredible amount of results. obviously, this is a hot topic. and obviously, there is no one good site to go to.

i did not go through the weblogs that john posted, trying to focus more on news websites/publications/research groups. i tried to not list the usual sites that people might use to search for news, such as the new york times, washington post, slashdot, etc.

surprisingly, a good source of information seem to be news sites originating in china. those sites seemed to have the latest news regarding internet/technology policies in china. most of the sites have a very good english web page, if it’s not all english already.

see extended for a list of the links.


=====
sites based outside of china.

http://news.search.com/search?version=x&tag=ex.ne.fd.srch.ne&q=china+internet
– but of course. cnet.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asia-pacific/
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business
– bbc actually seems very good at reporting china technology/internet policies.

http://asia.internet.com/
– seems like a good news site. but it’s unclear whether this is run from the united states or china.

http://ascweb.usc.edu/asc.php?pageID=304
– usc hosted a china and the internet conference in may of this year. there was a conference weblog at http://www.ojr.org/ojc/topics/index.php?tID=52. not breaking news website, but good source of information possibly.

http://www.hrw.org/backgrounder/asia/china-bck-0701.htm
– human rights watch site. has a section on freedom of expression and the internet in china. has some related links to articles of interest. not updated constantly. but a good source of background research.

http://www.wsj.com
– not a day goes by when i don’t read some article referring to some policy in china. not only related to the internet, but articles will appear regarding china’s technology policies.

http://search.wired.com/wnews/default.asp?query=china%20internet
– wired is good at a wide variety of topics and happens to mention china in numerous articles, if not focusing on china specifically.

http://www.newsmax.com/archives/articles/2002/5/2/192846.shtml
– newsmax did a series on the internet, china and us. also has some very dated links to articles about china and the internet. doesn’t seem to be the most breaking news format.

http://research.microsoft.com/aboutmsr/labs/beijing/beijing_pubs.aspx
– this is a highly technical site. microsoft seems to have a big research group focused on technology in china with many publications. not as focused on societal impacts, but just technical updates.

===========
sites based in china

http://www.chinainternetupdate.com/
– can sign up to receive over email. very straightforward newsy format. for people who don’t speak chinese. run from inside china by non-chinese. a service of xianzai.com

http://www.china.org.cn/english/index.htm
– news site.

http://english.peopledaily.com.cn/zhuanti/Zhuanti_49.html
– this is a link to some old news articles. however, the site can be searched for more up to date news.

http://www.chinasite.com/Technology/Chinanet.html
– this is more like a reference site with links to other sites with news relating to chinese technology. does not seem to be updated regularly.

http://www.chinaonline.com/issues/internet_policy/i_internet_policy.asp
– this site seems to have good news articles, but all news on the internet seemed to have stopped in 2002. odd.
