Xiao Qiang Interview

Our guest on August 19 was Xiao Qiang, noted human rights activist and director of the China Internet Project. We talked generally about technology and human rights in China, and specifically about the recently published report by Human Rights Watch, Race to the Bottom.

According to HRW, the report "documents how extensive corporate and private sector cooperation" enables the Chinese government in limiting access and dissemination of political and cultural information. We asked Xiao about the immediate and long term affects of these practices, and what he believes needs to be done.
