Google quits censoring in China

this is kind of amazing. i mean, it's not going to amount to much, China will just kick Google out and/or arrest Google's officials there. but we're starting to have corporations outright challenge governments. and it's all thanks to the internet.

and porn.

and i want to switch my iPhone for an Android now.

    there's talk in washington of requiring internet companies to make reasonable efforts to protect human rights or face civil/criminal liability, so this isn't too surprising

    I'm pretty sure if that happened there would be a lot of harrumphing in the west but it would just be a bunch of diplomacy with them probably eventually being released and repatriated with China not any worse off.

    all that would happen media-wise is the media outlets in the west would go slightly apeshit, the Chinese media would be censored to hell and give some BS reason (like "Google totally raped Chinese dogs illegally"), and the rest of the world's media will say "what is a Google?".

    i think it matters insomuch as it's an indicator of what's to come with China and the internet in general. we're likely going to see a country that is increasingly insular and creates a separate Chinese internet, cut off entirely from the rest of the world.
