In a recent Q&A session at the TED conference in California Sergey Brin, Googles co-founder, confidently stated that “We (he and Google) want to find a way to work within the Chinese system,” said Brin, but without having to censor political results.
“A lot of people might think I am naive and that might be true.”
Brin is believed to be one of the major forces at Google that decided to not censor results in China. Although he does not expect it to happen immediately he is optimistic that they can work something out “maybe in a year or two”. “A lot of people might think I am naive and that might be true.”
Googles recent statement about their intent to pull out of China has put a lot of international pressure on China.
Recently the United States Secretary Of State, Hillary Clinton, spoke out about Chinese policies and added the “Freedom To Connect” to U.S foreign policy.
