SIDE NOTES: INFORMATION IS USEFUL
Anyone who’s beeng half awake this past month has noticed some strange gyrations going on at Google. Some of them don’t seem to be the dance of the sweet, and friendly search engine we all love to have on our desktop.
One Was China
January 27, 2006–Google finally talks about China.
That was two days after CNN announced that Google agreed to meet China’s requirement for free speech censorship in order to be allowed into that rapidly growing, massive market.
In fairness, here is Google’s response after attending the Human Rights Caucus.

Whew! That’s settled. Now life can go on. Right? Unfortunately NO.
Two Is Video
This morning I don’t know what clicked me over to Boing Boing, but there I was and here’s what I saw. Click the image through to the article. This is interesting stuff.
First China. Now our videos?
Happy Valentine’s Day, Google.
Do you have something to tell me? Are we breaking up?
