NOTE: This is not intended to be serious.  :)

I think we should all boycott Cisco over this (not that I'd buy their
products in the first place..)  Their partnership with censors of a 
communist regime is repugnant.  Using the modern technology to build a
giant brainwashing machine is very scary.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - June 17, 1997 - The Beijing Telecommunications 
Administration (BTA) has selected Cisco Systems' StrataCom(R) Asynchronous 
Transfer Mode (ATM) switches for the city's first metropolitan-area 
network (MAN). The new multimillion-dollar ATM network will carry much 
of Beijing's Internet, corporate and intragovernmental data traffic. 
In addition to consolidating the capital's existing X.25 and low-speed 
data traffic, the network will provide Frame Relay services and citywide, 
high-speed data connectivity.
