Buzz, Google's new email-integrated, Twitter-like product, is throwing people into a tizzy regarding privacy concerns, and after the Google vs. PRC standoff against censorship, Buzz's implications for Chinese activists is under particular scrutiny.

I understand the point. But as I was walking around last night I passed a net bar and saw the usual crowd playing computer games on Chun Jie. Shouldn't you honor your parents and family on this one holiday and stay home, rather than run away to the net bar. Stay away from World of Warcraft at least once in a while!!!
