Nietzsche said that are “no moral phenomena at all, but only a moral interpretation of phenomena”. Zeitgeist has been closely following news of Google pulling out of China to the somewhat more independently-minded Hong Kong over recent days, prompted by cyberattacks that have come from within China. Moving to HK will allow Google to ‘uncensor’ itself. Yesterday Jonathan Zittrain, whom Zeitgeist have previously written about, spoke out via Skype on the issue and its ramifications (via TechCrunch). It makes for interesting watching.
These machinations raise questions about the ramifications of adjusted information, which people are all too willing to accept when it is “free” (financially speaking). It also might raise concern in a more general sense about how we go about using the Internet when one site acts as a veritable gateway.
