Looks like China has blocked any RSS Feed created with FeedBurner. This isn’t the first time China has blocked something from outside their borders on the web, but this is a huge deal.

RSS is becoming bigger and bigger. By blocking a rather popular services for tracking how many people are using a feed, this effectively cuts off an entire country to many valuable news sources and other services brought to us by RSS (podcasts and video podcasts, for instance).

What’s next from China? Is there anything FeedBurner can do to get let into that country again? Would they want to get back in given the stipulations that may be invovled?

Update: Looks like the ban only lasted a day.  Maybe someone flipped a switch they weren’t supposed to flip?
