Google So, I was about to go to bed when major news regarding Google and China hit my browser. Google has stated on its blog that after a number of attacks upon Google's servers, and attempted cracking of GMail accounts from Chinese human rights activists, the company is thinking of ceasing its operations in China. Google will, in any case, cease censoring search results on Google.cn.

It would work better if others follow, that is MSN, Yahoo!, Twitter, Facebook, etc. That will put some pressure on China.


I'm sorry don't take this as a personal attack but I really have to say: I don't know what surprises me the most... your comment or the fact that you have +5 mod.

Do you really think in your wildest dreams that pulling Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, The Mickey Mouse Blog or whatever, out from China, is going to put even the slightest bit of pressure on the Chinese Gov?

The Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, now that was pressure and look how it ended! Social networking pressure? That's almost insulting...

Either you were being sarcastic or you are really naive.
