VOICES BEYOND FIREWALL

Thirty two years ago, China sent its first-ever email. “Across the Great Wall, we can reach every corner of the world,” the Mail Administration of China wrote to researchers at Germany’s University of Karlsruhe at 9:07 p.m. Beijing time at Sept. 14, 1987. But instead of bridging the wall, China has since built a new one, in cyberspace - the largest system of Internet censorship, control and surveillance in the world, nicknamed the Great Firewall of China. Zola was fighting against with Great Firewall.

More than 1,400 Twitter users around the world took part in a U.S. Department of State sponsored contest to define democracy and the State Department announced the most popular "tweet" was from a Chinese user Zola, as know as "@zuola " :

"Democracy is a set of game rules that, in their gradual process towards perfection, independent individuals and organisations in a civil society seek to maximize their interests by using transparent and nonviolent means"

the message from Zola, which presumably stuck to the 140-character Twitter limit in Chinese. Winner Prizes was a Flip Video HD Camcorder.
