"IOC President, Jacques Rogge, was recently forced to back-pedal
under a barrage of criticism when it became clear that assurances
that the press corps would have "unrestricted" Internet access were
no more than piecrust promises...
"There is, though, a solution that is available for those
running Windows, Linux and Mac systems, which can be implemented in
many different ways and which Chinese authorities have a real
problem in counteracting - OpenVPN. Since this free (as in beer and
as in speech) GPL software uses technologies that are vitally
important for many Chinese companies, simply closing down this
solution is not really an option to the Chinese government. Users
can work on their own servers, without needing to tell any other
users about them, in complete security."
