Google Does Good

Good move for Google, bad one for China. It is wonderful that Google is taking a stand and doing the right thing. It is sad that China continues to do wrong and repress free speech -- China fears those with new & different ideas that it cannot control. For more see:

I hope Google is able to maintain this stance in face of governmental and economic pressures. In the long run it could make economic sense.

Additionally, Google is the only major web-based email vendor I know that does not automatically show the originating IP address of the sender in email headers (for emails sent using their web interface) -- thus providing some anonymity to those who need to protect their identity.

Bravo Google!

Hello and thank you so much for a beautiful piece of work. I came across your blog whilst looking for people with likeminded interests and it was refreshing to read something with substance.
I am proactive in the protection of Human Rights and am a keen supporter of the Tibetan fight for freedom.
I would really like to follow your blog and would really appreciate if you could check mine out and see what you think.

Thanks again for a great piece of work.
