Tibet 'Disappeared' From Google Earth?

Scot Hacker: Where’s Tibet? When we think about Google being in bed with the Chinese government and blocking access to information about Tibet, we know it’s bad, but we also assume the censorship applies only to Google users in China. Here we have an example of Google’s complicity affecting searches conducted from anywhere in the world.

What Scot, a colleague at Berkeley, has found is disturbing. China’s Internet muscle-flexing is causing all kinds of damage to the world. If we are to have reliable information, and if Google won’t provide it, we’re in for strange times to come.
