I'm enjoying Imagethief's take on the apparent blocking of Feedburner in China. His message: small is beautiful and if you use a popular feed service expect the service to be intermittent:

Imagethief learned long ago that there is particular risk in blogging or syndicating through large services as they are all prone to what appear to be completely arbitrary blockings and unblockings. I swear it's like they have a large "wheel of fortune" on the wall at the ministry, and every two or three months they give it a spin.

Ziiiinnnng! Step right up and place your bets. Who's plug gets pulled this autumn? Livejournal? No one will notice. Bonus repeat spin! Ziiiinnngggggggg....
