1/ Google is working on a new search engine code-named "Dragonfly" that will aid China's effort to censor information from its citizenry.
As a former Google engineer I wanted to share some information on what it's like to be inside Google as these decisions are made pic.twitter.com/HAts5wXwsU
2/ I previously shared that in 2006 I was an engineer who worked on Google News and was asked to write code to censor new results in China.
I've found some emails from 2006 that shed more light on the censorship requirements of the Chinese state.https://t.co/DGzLQ75n2y
3/ The emails I'm presenting came from a mailing list at Google where employees discussed topics on politics and economics. I have formatted the emails for readability and redacted the names of my colleagues, with whom I was debating. The topic was the 2008 Olympics in China. pic.twitter.com/ciyxfMXd85
