New York Times definitely not blocked in Beijing

The New York Times website is working perfectly, as tested from four different Internet connections in the capital this evening.

Perhaps it is a Passover gift to the Jews of Beijing. Hach Sameach!

However, it seems that the problem was nothing to do with a block, but rather related to the website's recent redesign. The home page is now 6 columns wide in some parts, and features video, different types of links, a bunch of different ad formats etc.

Comments on New York Times definitely not blocked in Beijing

Are you afraid you're becoming too quick to put the blame on China's net nanny? Some more patience may have been required in the case of both the alleged blocking of the New York Times and the shutdown of the Massage Milk blog.

Works perfectly from Tianjin too, and not being a Jew, I can't claim it as a Passover gift. And it didn't come in a chocolate egg-shaped form, so it's not an Easter gift either. Guess the NY Times is more available than some would have us believe.

I am based in BJ and can't acces the NY times...
