Noel Hidalgo deported from China / by Nate Westheimer

According to this filing on GroundReport.com, it seems my friend and fellow Silicon Alleyist Noel Hidalgo was recently deported from China for filming and uploading video from a protest held by Students for a Free Tibet, in Tiananmen Square. He's now safely back in New York.

Regardless of your opinion of Tibet/China relations or the politics of staging protests during the Olympic Games, Noel's capture of this event, and subsequent deportation, should reveal an interesting and important balance between Citizen Journalism and world affairs to you.
