Google is famous for their slogan “Do No Evil.” However, when Google created Google.cn to serve the huge (and growing) Chinese market they made a very significant compromise with the Communist government of China; they agreed to censor their search results. Many people, myself included, were disappointed that Google “sold out” their beliefs. However, Google announced yesterday on their Official Google Blog that they will not censor results any longer and are willing to close Google.cn and their Chinese offices if necessary. I’m a forgiving person and I believe Google will do the right thing. Google, I salute you!
PS A brief apology: last week (my first week of the new year) I broke my resolution to blog 3 time/week. I’m not throwing in the towel though, so keep holding me to my resolutions.
