Google Goes Uncensored in China

This is what Google users in China will see right now if they search Tiananmen Square. This morning Google did what they've been saying they would do for months, and went completely uncensored in China. www.google.cn now redirects to www.google.com.hk, the Google portal for Hong Kong. In the coming hours we will undoubtedly see the Chinese government's response to this direct infringement upon their access to information policies. I will unfortunately be on a place, and so I'm going to miss the showdown. Regardless it will be well documented and discussed for years to come. Today is truly history in the making.
