China’s Firewall, Bill Gates’ Hypocrisy

I have just put up a little piece over at Living in China on the blatant hypocrisy of big US tech firms like Microsoft and Cisco that provide the tools for China’s infamous Internet censorship and persecution, and then shrug their shoulders and say, “That’s not our problem.” Bill Gates in particular comes off looking like a weasel (which he is).

P.S. I see it’s a bit difficult to differentiate the hyperlinks from the text over at LiC — if you squint carefully, you’ll see the hyperlinks are charcoal grey, a touch lighter than the body copy.

The Discussion: One Comment

Yeah, I think that it’s hilarious how people tout Gates’s humanitarian contributions and somehow forget he’s basically driving a huge freakin’ steamroller.
