Google in China

Stunning news out of China this morning about Google.  Recently saw a CNBC special called the “Mind of Google”.  For Google to walk away from China is truly astonishing. but then its probably Death by a Thousand Cuts.  From the stifling censorship to its inability to dominate the market to the arcane rules it need to abide by, I donot blame the company.  Paired with the controversy that it is in India, where Google posts have lead to rioting and city-wide shutdows, it shows the perils of being an information multinational.

But I do wonder, if Google falls who next.
