Jason Calacanis on Google in China
About Google/China. I don’t think Google is being a Bad Guy. Jason goes a few steps further and argues that Google is being a GOOD Guy. Hmmmm… The official Google blog tells Google’s side:
We’re in this for the long haul. In the years to come, we’ll be making significant and growing investments in China. Our launch of google.cn, though filtered, is a necessary first step toward achieving a productive presence in a rapidly changing country that will be one of the world’s most important and dynamic for decades to come. To some people, a hard compromise may not feel as satisfying as a withdrawal on principle, but we believe it’s the best way to work toward the results we all desire.
