I agree with Bill on this one…

…it does make sense for Google to be in China as feedback from Chinese bloggers suggests. It’s better than nothing, with Google it’s easier to beat the system, too much emphasis on censorship in the west; these are all typical reactions. Sure it’s Realpolitik, but then so much of life is. Constructive engagement makes sense. China is rapidly on the way to being the next superpower, and has a population of over one billion people as well as one of the oldest and most fascinating cultures on earth. You can’t ignore that.
