Earlier this year (pre iPad, pre Facebook Like Button and right after my swine flu) the awesome Andy Blue of Pirate Cat Radio 87.9 FM in SF interviewed me on FAT Lab, Firefox Add-ons, stickers, open source and activism. Tune in! (35 min)
Experience the censored Chinese internet at home!
The Firefox add-on China Channel offers internet users outside of China the ability to surf the web as if they were inside mainland China. Take an unforgetable virtual trip to China and experience the technical expertise of the Chinese Ministry of Information Industry (supported by western companies). It’s open source, free and easy.
Watch the fffffat screencast:
This project is currently exhibited at the “Videotage” in Hong Kong (6.10.-4.11.2008)
Two computers are connected to a single keyboard and mouse allowing visitors to control both identical machines at the same time while using just a single input device. The only difference between the two internet terminals is their network connection; one machine is connected to the less restricted internet in Hong Kong, while the other is connected to the internet through a connection point in the mainland of China.
China Channel was developed by Aram Bartholl, Evan Roth and Tobias Leingruber (consulted by LM4K and Jamie Wilkinson.)
