September 12, 2002: New Scientist on Using elgooG to Bypass the Google Block

New Scientist: Google mirror beats Great Firewall of China. 'The mirror site, called elgooG, is a parody of the English language version of Google in which all the text on the web pages has been reversed. The text terms used for searches are also entered in reverse. The site, which returns all the same hits as Google, can be accessed from behind China's "great firewall".'

I'm surprised it hasn't been blocked yet. If anyone knows another way to get to Google from China, please let me know. (Thanks, S. Anand)
