Re: China's Google Blockage

Sorry, I just noticed I sent this without saying why:

What caught my eye was this part:

On Tuesday, Google co-founder Sergey Brin defended his company's decision to launch the censored Google.cn service, a move which drew heavy criticism.

"We felt that perhaps we could compromise our principles but provide ultimately more information for the Chinese and be a more effective service," he said.

"Perhaps now the principled approach makes more sense."

Looks like maybe Google is reconsidering its partnership with the .cn government?

And then secondarily :

Chinese authorities have also stepped up measures against software designed to bypass internet censorship, the Reporters Without Borders statement said.

I'm not sure what "stepped up" means, though...
