Google stands up to china!!!

I too support net neutrality. The guys over at boingboing should be happy.

in reference to:
"WASHINGTON- Human rights activists rejoiced Tuesday over Google's vow to defy China Internet censors, hoping it would be a "wake-up call" for businesses that make compromises to enter the giant market. Google said it will stop filtering Internet search results in China and risk banishment from the lucrative market in outrage at "highly sophisticated" cyberattacks aimed at Chinese human rights activists. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called on Beijing to explain cyberattacks originating from China against Google and other firms. "We have been briefed by Google on these allegations, which raise very serious concerns and questions," Clinton said in a released statement. "We look to the Chinese government for an explanation," the chief US diplomat added. "The ability to operate with confidence in cyberspace is critical in a modern society and economy," she said. Blogging sites including Twitter were swarmed with messages of elation after the Internet giant's shock announcement that it would reconsider its China business."
