Carol Lin: "The Flavor of Freedom"

Carol Lin (林凯洛) (a.k.a. The Carol), a prolific Taiwanese blogger, microblogger, social activist, and an all-around digital maven, shares her thoughts on censorship and digital savvy. (More inside.)

Lin is also well known for her photography. In this interview, she speaks about the lack of development in the Chinese web 2.0 / Internet industry, Taiwan's uncensored Internet, the opportunity average Chinese people got to "taste the flavor of freedom in an unblocked Internet" during the Olympics, and digitally savvy Chinese netizens.
