We’ve all known about the Great Firewall of China but this is a first for me. Google is, reportedly, standing up a censored version of it’s core service. I understand the Chinese market is massive and if you’re in tech and not there, then you will probably not be relevant in the next 10 years, but an American company throwing liberty out the window in order to make money doesn’t sit with me the right way.

Again, I am trying to get away from google but damn it is painful. The services are too good and there aren’t legit replacements.
