Hong Kong falls yet again
Posted on by Jason Li
The Hong Kong government proves yet again that it is decidedly backward with regards to internet governance.
Original article from ESWN:
- “‘fireman 1324’ at the chat room ‘Adult Images Posting Area’…”
- posted links to overseas pornographic material
- “Police raided a Sham Shui Po flat and arrested Woo”
- “fireman 1324” is fined $5000 HKD (~$650 USD)
See previously on Virtual China:
- Hong Kong is tougher: arrest of another file sharer
- Hong Kong enlists kids in p2p monitoring
- The Hong Kong Youth Ambassadors Against Internet Piracy
It seems like the HK government likes to single out individual internet users and arrest/fine them to make an example out of them.
Even then, to fine someone for posting a dirty hyperlink in an “adult” section?

As someone who’s about to visit China, I’ve been reading your site with great interest.
I’m curious to know whether you know of any resources where I might find information on Beijing’s theatre scene?
I don’t know anything off the top of my head, I’d recommend picking up one of those local event mags (“that’s beijing” is the most well-known if I recall correctly) and checking that out. Shouldn’t be too hard to find one…
Yes, you can also find it online. Also check out what’s on at the venerable People’s Art Theatre, which often performs plays about Beijing culture. Mostly in Chinese. Website is http://www.bjry.com/english/index.jsp
