Google and China

It seems that google’s good citizen image is not limited to western shores. The NY Times has a nice long article about how the Chinese gov. censors the media, and what kind of challenges western companies like google in particular face. The Chinese gov. actually leaves most of the censoring to the companies, without creating any guidelines. This creates an environment where anything gets filtered because the gov has not laid down any kind of guidance.

I can’t wait to start work in China, as I’d really like to experience things first hand.
