Official Google Blog: Testimony: The Internet in China

Official Google Blog: Testimony: The Internet in China

This is the word straight from the proverbial horses mouth, straight to congress.

I personally found this testimony clear, on topic, and thoughtful, albiet wordy.

It makes clear one point, Google is not filtering Google.com, they are ADDING Google.cn. Google.cn will be inside China as an additional service.

Couple other key points:
1) Access to Google.com will not be blocked, removed or otherwise filtered by Google.
2) No Blogger or Gmail will be hosted in China to protect privacy.

Obviously emotions run high on this, but mine has shifted more towards a positive view of this effort.
