China: Technorati unblocked (again)

After having been blocked and unblocked in China, blog aggregator Technorati seems to be back, says Imagethief blogger Will, the day after the the seventeenth anniversary of one of the darkest days in China's contemporary history.

“Why now?” Will asks. “If I were a parnoid, conspiracy-obsessed recluse (I and I don't specifically deny it) I might suspect it's because today is June 5th, which is to say, on the back side of June 4th. (Along with a few others, Imagethief noted some weird hiccups in Google's service late last week as well, further adding to his cold sweats and furtive, darting eye movements.)”
