And then there Google vs China

Sometimes it is better late than never. Hopefully this is one of those cases. There have been reports all over the internet about China hacking Google and Google’s response by turning off their censoring services.

One of the things that I am taking away from this is the ability for a company/organization to be on equal footing with a country. The power has been shifting for decades from government to corporation. If a corporation is large enough to force a government to bend to its will then it is pretty obvious who is in control.

In this case China isn’t bending but the story isn’t over yet so it will be interesting to see how it ends.
