Google Alert in China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 3, 2010

Funny that China is declaring Google to be evil and such a bad influence, but we still got ’em here. yeah, google from Hong Kong is zipping right along, its as if nothing had happened.

Another funny thing is that I was watching CCTV, the communist government channel-as they basically all are. And on this channel, they wanted to show where specifically an event had occurred in another country so they zoomed in on the map and then accessed none other than google maps to show the location. To me it is indicative of much of what happens in China: pragmatic, hypocritical, proud.
