Chinese version of Wikipedia

China’s, has launched a Chinese language online encyclopedia inspired by the cooperative reference site Wikipedia, which the communist government bars China’s Web surfers from seeing. The Chinese service, which debuted in April, carries entries written by users, but warns that it will delete content about sex, terrorism and attacks on the government. Government censors blocked access last year to Wikipedia, apparently due to concern about its references to Tibet, Taiwan and other topics.
