Search Engine Battles

Did you hear the news today that Google is considering pulling out of China?

Google's Beijing office happens to be right across from my office and this afternoon people had put flowers on the Google sign like it was a memorial.

Reporters from around the world were there.

I think it's cool that Google is taking a stand. But I'm afraid that if Google makes good on this threat to pull out of China, China will forget about them in the time it takes to say "baidu".

Wow, I didn't realize you were so close -- literally -- to this contentious issue! Nice line at the end, too. I only hope China won't say "baidu" to Google (as you say!), but right now it's not looking good.
