The e-liberation of China’s youth

XIANGYIN, CHINA ? Down a garbage-strewn back alley in the grimy Hunan town of Xiangyin, the Internet cafe is crammed. In the stifling basement room, three dozen twentysomethings are transfixed by their computer screens. I fork over one yuan (about 15 cents) to check my e-mail and the global headlines. The connection is so fast, I could be sitting in Toronto.
