Obviously, I'm not a big fan of Google's decision to allow the Chinese government to censor the results of searches at the Chinese version of the world-beating search engine, although I wonder if getting a foot into the Chinese market will actually assist in changing these types of policies in the long run. Either way, I was discussing the practical implications of the restrictions with a student today and had to plead ignorance as to knowing how this will actually affect searches at the Chinese site. Luckily for me, Clara from Liberty Belles is on the case:

Here's the results of a U.S. Google image search for "Tianamen". Now compare those to the results of the same search on the Chinese site.

Pretty interesting.
