    BBC News - Can China's internet firms balance nationalism with global dreams?

    **************************************

    China's foray to balance nationalism with global dreams.

    Given the Chinese paranoia, their nationalism will overtake their global dreams.

    Or will the Chinese realise the power of the cyberspace and the necessity to balance nationalism with global dreams?

    Innovation and soft power is not possible without the free flow of ideas and China can only be little succesfull in its paranoid censorship.
    As technology grows exponentially it will become harder and harder for the the great firewall of China to be sustained.

    China cannot have it's version of silicon valley if it suppresses free information like this.
