Baidu hires senior Google executive [news.cnet.com]

Baidu has hired a senior executive from Google's China operation, the most high-profile defection since Google's standoff with the Chinese government began.

...

The Financial Times said Wang's move from Google to Baidu was the first time a senior Google employee in China had followed that path. Analysts and observers have wondered if defections were inevitable following Google's recent moves in China, although the report said few employees have actually taken that step.
