Well, Tibetan kids in the Dalai Lama's school systems have been using computers far longer, and at a much higher rate per capita, than Tibetan kids in Tibet. So I'd say China's claim of "modern progress in Tibet" is far-fetched at best, and outright lies at worst.<quoted text>
Quit possibly. But enlighten us Little Willie, who do you think is responsible for the development of Tibet that has led to the advent of computers there... the Dalai Lama?
Also, it's hard to do your creative best when you have to fork over an "internet browsing card" to the grumpy Chinese staff woman who then looks over your shoulder at every word, ready to pounce on anything "splittist" and call the authorities in to harass you and threaten your grandmother.
Chinese progress in Tibet is an Orweillian myth.
