Google's Outta Here
My colleague Rebecca MacKinnon explains why that's a good thing.
To be honest, I was shocked that Google decided to get a spine and stop censoring its service into China. (They'd been blocking info that was "sensitive" to the Chinese government, like Tienanmen Square).
Kudos to 'em. In 2005, the guys at Yahoo, as you may recall, actually opened their files to the Chinese government, and gave the Chinese private emails that helped convict a journalist of "divulging state secrets."
