Not as many of Tank Man as the regular uncensored Google, but they are starting to get through.

They should put Tank Man on their start page.  THAT would be epic.

They could draw the 'o's in "Goooogle" logo as tanks and the 'l' into a guy standing in front of them...  :roll:

Speaking of Flash issues, from Slashdot -- YouTube Revamp Imminent? --

Quote
YouTube's latest blog post indicated that some changes are on the way.  Google has opened up a call to submit and vote on ideas.  HTML 5 open video with Free formats has dominated the vote, maintaining over twice as many votes as the next-highest item almost since the vote opened up.  You may vote here (Google login required).  Perhaps we don't even need to since their blog post comes suspiciously soon after their revised merger with On2.  Could these improvements be a completely overhauled YouTube 2.0?

If you're participating, please search for "html 5", "ogg", "theora", etc and click the checkmark icon.  Sometimes it will say "voting is closed", but that seems to apply to individual items and not the process as a whole.


In other Google news, it seems that the hack came from the Chinese government itself and involved a 0-day IE exploit.  I sure hope this will result in more corporations refusing to bow when a government goes too far!

From Slashdot -- Google Donates $2 Million To the Wikimedia Foundation --

Quote
Yesterday, the Wikimedia Foundation, which runs Wikipedia and other projects, announced that it has received a $2 million donation from Google.  This is the first time that Google has supported Wikipedia, and it has many wondering why.  Anyone remember Knol [WP], Google's answer to Wikipedia?

Man, if I hadn't become a tinfoil-hat-wearing Anarcho-Capitalist idiot I quite possibly could have been so fucking happy working for Google and thinking I'm on top of the world...  :cry:
