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