In my last post, I talked about Google's presence in China and its decision to censor certain keywords at the request of the Chinese Government.
Andrew McLaughlin, Senior Policy Counsel at Google, wrote a post on January 27, 2006, called Google in China, that argues Google's decision and responds to criticism expressed by the public.
Granted, this and other news items that I have posted lately have no direct connection to digization or McGill's digitalpermanence project.
But I believe that in pursuing digitization and digital perservation we are in fact pursuing improving and increasing access to information now and in the future...something which Google's decision somewhat strays away from.
