Web Directions Year round learning for web and digital professionals

Google’s new approach to China

We recognize that this may well mean having to shut down Google.cn, and potentially our offices in China

This is a hugely important step, and a courageous one by Google, who really are willing to put their money where their mouth is.

The full story is well worth reading.
