Just in case you don't know what the hell "Green Dam" is, it's a content-control software developed in the People's Republic of China. Every future PC in China will have to have this software installed (though the running of this software is not currently mandatory).

It is widely believed that this is a measure taken by the Chinese government to somehow control information and the Internet. As you can imagine, this crazy idea is hated by the computer industry and the Chinese netizens.

The infamous "popularity" of this stupid software has inspired the Internet citizens to create a manga-style 'Green Dam Girl'.

Some pics of her I found in my local forums:

So Nitori got herself a new job?

I find the similarity somewhat amusing.

Well, there was versions of Green Dam that were getting close to blatant rip-off. But hopefully the artists understand the similarity and try develop the character into more original.

Ahahaha! When I first saw the Green Dam-tan, the first thing that came to mind that she looks like Nitori! I agree that Green Dam-tan is an evil character and it's a good thing this software is so hated!

how cute, even though it's for a rather vile program. technically viru-tan is evil, but we love her anyway. in time there might be a few dam-tan backgrounds floating around the gallery.
hate the program, not the -tan.

There are already songs and even fan-based games regarding Green Dam-tan. Maybe she won't have an impact outside China, but she will definitely be a hit in the Chinese community LOL

Actually... it seems that China had backed off on the filter required installation. So... yeah... no filter to keep you away from sites for (quite) a while.

Yeah, China is as crazy as two horses shipped from Shanghai with headaches and toothpaste rubbed into their arses.


Also, jetlag sucks.

What was the topic again? Oh, right.

I'm not sure whether the amount of inaccessible sites was caused by crappy connection and such, or the Great Golden Firewall, but I can say fo sho that surfing in China is easier with a board on the Yangtze river than on the internet.
Damn, it's good to be home.

During your stay in China, what websites were restricted and of how many websites you wanted to visit, how many of them could you actually visit?

NejinOniwa

Well, considering the small amount of free time we had we didn't get to surf a lot, but I think YouTube was blocked, and for some reason, my job database as well. Wtf?

That's like having a tiny soldier giving orders inside the PC. Her design looks very military IMO.
Death as come. 2K Chan has but killed in extended Support. She has finally become Unsupported She is finally fully rejected by her Birth company. It\'s so sad...

Kiso

That's actually the general idea/conception of the Green Dam girl.

Anyways... anyone ever noticed the Vista and 98SE jokes? lol If not, look at their hairs. XDDDD
