I sort of ignored the issue of Google's recent compromise to stay in the China market and choosing the lesser of two evils. Eric Schmidt stated, "We actually did an evil scale and decided not to serve at all was worse evil." What can you do especially if you are a public company? Even if you were private but as significant as Google can you pull out of China? It would be incredible to one day see a CEO with the chutzpah to keep their principles in ALL situations (don't you love words in other languages? sometimes you can't full express or describe things in english, and other languages capture some meanings so much better).

Andy Kessler has an interesting post, "WSJ:," on this recent situation.

Pajamas Media has a great blog called China Syndrome that lists various posts and news on this topic.

Over at TCS Daily (formerly TechCentralStation), James V. DeLong takes the other side, "Google Is Right on China"
