I read in the newspaper this week that a gambler had bet £800,000 on Scotland voting ‘no’ for independence. A massive personal gamble, or was it?
I saw an article in the New York Times about the official Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission which left me realising how far we have to go before we have our key organisations run with a sense of responsibility and integrity.
Today I read this article about Google and its presence in China.
Google is considering withdrawing from China completely because of the continued internet censorship and China-based cyber attacks on human rights activists using its Gmail service. Google is the second largest search engine in China, and China has the largest number of internet users on the world. A withdrawal would be a values based decision. Google"s mantra is "Do no evil", and they went through a lot of soul searching during the process of entering China in the first place. The loss of immediate revenue would be considerable.
