Slashdot debates Google’s new China news service

After news broke that Google has been accused of omitting certain sources in their new Chinese language news service, readers at Slashdot.org (“News for nerds. Stuff that matters.”) have been in a lively debate over the issues. Read the arguments here.

Last year, Wired magazine published an article “ vs. Evil”: “The world’s biggest, best-loved search engine owes its success to supreme technology and a simple rule: Don’t be evil. Now the geek icon is finding that moral compromise is just the cost of doing big business.” The full article is here.

As Ellen Sander noted on a previous comment, Google was briefly blocked in China in September 2002.
