Yet more confirmation of the futility of Google’s morality play against China:The same executives who are currently running Google’s censored China search engine are planning to start another (censored) search engine the moment Google pulls out, according to rumours passed on by MarketWatch founder Bill Bishop in Beijing:
Sina Editor in Chief says reliable source claims google china’s top execs returned 2day 2 beijing from secret mtg in zhejiang. Google china execs liu yun, tang qifeng, guo li will do search engine startup together” if tru google.cn toast. Just rumour at this point
In other words, as expected, Google’s pullout from China will hurt Google shareholders, Google employees, and Google partners…and help absolutely no one.
