man….its all over the news these days…..Google is looking to exit the market in China….
its just gone that far in China….they are blocking my friend’s Chinese blogs here, they have blocked twitter, facebook and others….
it seems unfair, google is considered to be the last major foreign internet company in china….yahoo sold out to alibaba , so many others are blocked……
makes me start to wonder, how can i run an ecommerce internet company in china doing ecommerce and english promotion….when constantly blogs, facebook, twitter, and now google down.
how can i check my email – people all over the place here are backing up their email. its insane…..my company email is run on google apps for business. will my staff not be able to access their email.
so, i have to start thinking of what if….what if….
move to hong kong temporarily – i have some friends there. stay on their couch. decide what to do. i can continue to send money to shenzhen company remotely, i trust my staff to continue to go to the office. i will continue to pay them.
do i stay in hong kong. maybe thailand, or phillippines. i have some support and some friends in those countries. singapore is another.
or even back to usa. nah…..i have to stay on this side of the world.
am i over- reacting…..
i mean, i hope china then doesnt start to seize foreign companies in china. then again, the company is owned by the hong kong company, so the government wouldnt see me immediately as an american owned company here- they would see the company as hong kong owned.
just another day in china. is this another scare…..but it seems real, it seems a standoff between google and the chinese government. and i dont think google will win. Chinese government cannot change their censorship policy , it would make them look weak…….
