I've gotten reports that @kottke is unreachable in China. Perhaps it was this link about China's surveillance state (which explicitly mentioned Tiananmen Square)? https://twitter.com/kottke/status/1137031965394128896 Or this post about Tank Man that gets passed around each June? https://kottke.org/12/06/more-views-of-the-tiananmen-tank-man
