Google executives confirm plan to bring search engine to China [mybroadband.co.za]
Google executives admitted for the first time this week that they’re looking to get their search engine up and running in China after a hiatus of almost a decade.
At the company’s weekly all-staff meeting, the project was discussed by co-founder Sergey Brin — the very executive most closely associated with the decision in 2010 to pull out of China. It was a widely lauded move by Google managers, led by Brin, who argued that they’d rather leave than subject their search tool to China’s stringent rules that filter out politically sensitive results, such as the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre.
The change of heart is also the clearest sign yet that some Googlers view the pullout as a costly miscalculation.
