Google is not Evil, While nor God
Read the news from Yahoo News several days ago, at the moment my reaction told this maybe my first standing oppositely with Google. In order to collect extensive comments on the web, I was not anxious to post my viewpoint, and kept it silent here. And now, it may be the time for me to say something about the news.
Google Agrees to Censor Results in ChinaBeing disappointed? More or less, that must for sure. We ever put the hopes on Google. But most of the comments pay a majority of attention on the searching result, with which noted:
Online search engine leader Google Inc. has agreed to censor its results in China, adhering to the country's free-speech restrictions in return for better access in the Internet's fastest growing market.
The Mountain View, Calif.-based company planned to roll out a new version of its search engine bearing China's Web suffix ".cn," on Wednesday. A Chinese-language version of Google's search engine has previously been available through the company's dot-com address in the United States.
“According to the local rule of law and policy, searching results are partially ensconced.” at the bottom of the page.
– I’m not sure the note is extra same with the original, and I believe there’s no original in English, so I make a translation here.
And delivered their points no more than the “Speech Freedom”, “Google’s flaccidity”, even “Human Right”…… the old key words. For me, it can not be common than this. I’m not a news analyst, and do not care much about the polity. The words from Premier Wen impressed me much: Even the most minimum problem, you have to make it 1.3 Billion times bigger when you put it in China. Also, even for the largest investment, you have to divide into 1.3 Billion pieces in China. It’s none of my business to judge right or wrong on this event. And it’s absolutely puerile and being irresponsible for judging, simply base on the value concept formed in the island with only 8 million populations. To the government, I put no hope, naturalness, there won’t be disappointed. Thanks for the VPN technology.
Different from the earlier “Skype Event”, it contained more business benefit reason behind. China Telecom must be sham on it. It can be seem as a competition between two companies. And the government, they’re doing the same things as the other governments in other country will do while facing such instance. They acted as supporter. “Skype Event” is much more ordinary than this chess rivalry between Google and the government, between faith and benefit, between culture and market, and between the different opinions or usage to the internet. Keso blogged the post and issue his points.
Google is not an organization something like moral defender, new rules explorer, new age hero, or a human rights fighter. The U.S government has argued for it for more than 30 years. What would you expect Google could achieve? Google, is just nothing more than a company, and youthful. And its aims are nothing ordinary than profit and marketing. It created many new notions in business model and giant imagine in technology. You can even say it re identified the internet. And it has to follow some rules at the same time. No matter we hoped too much above Google, or Google carries too much itself. From the first day I hold the stock, I should position it on a proper place. But we didn’t. Drop down your overload expectation, revert the role what Google should be. It may make you feeling better. Google re identifies the internet, but it’s time for you to re identify Google.
Google is not Evil, While nor God.
