“The wall as the voice of the people shouting”

Kellner—-“Globalization, Technopolitics and Revolution”

Technological resistance: limiting technological use, does it mean you are not actively work for change via technological advances, therefore you are not a responsible citizen? I don’t think so. As long as they are engaged in the public sphere, they are act agencies of change.

Guobin Yang—-“Power and Transgression in the Global Media Age—-the Strange Case of Twitter in China”

Why he did not chose sina weibo, or examine the two in a comparative study?

Yang’s study shows the case of how local people seek for outside information, which is opposite to many other scholars’ research on outside media penetrating into borders.

Is it common for most nation-states to have multi-level border zones, or is this something specific to China?
