Google and China

Google's A new approach to China: an update. I didn't post about Google's March 22nd decision to stop offering a censored version of its search engine for mainland China, but it is one of the most interesting decisions ever made by a technology or media company.

It shows that a corporation doesn't exist solely for (short-term) profit maximization if the owners have other principles or objectives. It also shows that a media/tech company can come to the conclusion that sometimes it is not possible to do business if the price is that one has to accept censorship.
