Google finally said No to Chinese censorship. Every other internet based company that’s walked through the great wall of China has been bending over “blocking” all the bad things that the Chinese government wants to hide from the people.
Google says no and they mean it too. The best quote of the article:
“We recognize that this may well mean having to shut down Google.cn, and potentially our offices in China.”
The worst part of the article, how it took hackers to shake the tree of Google (and others)
Wow, that’s a big risk but a strong one. Will it payoff? Will others like Yahoo! and Bing follow (not likely)?
