No Evil doesn’t mean All Good

  2006-01-27


So Google’s censoring the Internet for China — turns out Google’s philosophy of not being evil doesn’t mean they have to be good. Turns out they’re happy to sit on the fence with the rest of the spineless capitalists (read: Yahoo! & MSN) and do whatever the biggest-potential-market-the-world-has-ever-seen tells them to do.

Update: Censorship in action – Normal Google vs. Google China.

(Scary censhorship example stolen from Planet PHP.)

Update 2: Evidently Google agrees:  “Filtering our search results clearly compromises our mission.”  (Thanks to Dan for the link.)
