* Does China block hotmail, google, geocities, akamai, etc? Does he think
  they will? Even if we start doing organized content distribution
  over them?

* Is there much monitoring of internal networks? That is, is most of the
  traffic monitoring happening on the China border, or do they watch
  the inside too?

* I heard that China sends you through SSL proxies, so you don't actually
  get a private encrypted connection when you exit China. (That is,
  there's an official and public "man in the middle" attack.) Can he
  confirm this? If users actually do get a secure connection, is it 40
  bit or 128 bit?
