The long-lasting concern that other Google application will be banned in China after Search became a reality. In the recent two months, Gmail has been more and more inaccessible.
I am still not sure what is happening behind, Gmail is just on and off with some functions like “send”, or “view” hanging there for ever. That, I assume, will also promote the usage of VPN in China in the tech space. At least I have to rely on VPN to access Gmail.
I am just curious about how the history will record these interesting period of time. Does it finally settle in the textbook just as we settle Culture Revolution? People like me already have no idea to feel the exact frustration, pain, and hopeless of that era. What will people feel after 50 years? Can they feel the frustration we have today?
History forgets itself, and repeats itself. Always. Sometimes when I am driving along the Hong Kou District and see those Jewish buildings. That reminds me of the terrible time during the WII. At least, the buildings are still there. But in a digital world, after few decades, when all the websites, and digital stuff disappear, what is left?
