Google China

Just something we passed the other night in Haidian… it’s bizarre to see a physical Google entity.
Edit 1/17/10: After mysterious hackers attempted to break into the GMail accounts of Chinese activists, Google seems to be sick of the Great Firewall and general doubletalk. is disappearing, and local Google-lovers have left flowers and candles, as if it were a funeral for a beloved friend, at the Google building in China. Just another disconnect between Chinese law and average people, but I’m sad to see it.

    We went to the Indian restaurant near there… if you haven't been, you should totally check out Ganges! That's the only thing I know in that area… we'll call you next time we head out that way

    Are you SURE it’s Google? There is a net bar here in Jinzhou that uses a similar sign, but of Microsoft… IPR violations abound. 🙂

    Wow, that is pretty neat. I would love to be inside and pick their brains for an hour or two!

    haha I think it’s Google, it has the Chinese characters for Google underneath it. But if it’s not, the all-seeing Google overlords will read the post and track it down!
