Google China’s Memorial

Google China memorial

In case you still haven’t learned about Google’s “New Approach to China” lengthy post announcing that they will no longer censor its Chinese search engine (Google.cn) even if it means shutting it down news until now. It looks like some Chinese are already giving Google China an early memorial service.

Here’s the key paragraph from the Google post on their blog:

“These attacks and the surveillance they have uncovered–combined with the attempts over the past year to further limit free speech on the web–have led us to conclude that we should review the feasibility of our business operations in China. We have decided we are no longer willing to continue censoring our results on Google.cn, and so over the next few weeks we will be discussing with the Chinese government the basis on which we could operate an unfiltered search engine within the law, if at all. We recognize that this may well mean having to shut down Google.cn, and potentially our offices in China.”
