I just read this aricle in the NY Times which indicates that there are several groups of young mainlandĀ  Chinese techies, that are transklating American TV shows into Chinese for free download off of BitTorrent. What is cool about this is it is enableing some valid cultural information and ideas to get into the hands of chinese people, and provide them with more food for thoguht. I’m not advocating american ideas necessarily “good” or Chinese ideas necessarily “bad” jut that it’s good when more information flows into China which has been historically “censored.” Here is link to article
