No blogging in Beijing

Access to Blogger in China is somewhat of a see-saw ride. In 2005, it was announced that the Blogger ban in China was lifted (see article).  This article in the Shanghaiist dated Feb 29, 2008 states that Blogger is accessible again.  Not all agree though, as can be seen in the comments.

On my recent trip to Beijing (end of March, early April), I was not able to access Blogger. So blame Tibet, the Olympics and sensitive Chinese authorities for not being able to read your favourite posts on Africa's development challenge last week.
