The big news in recent days, of course, has been Google shutting off their Chinese internet service and redirecting all traffic to their Hong Kong servers. In general, they’ve been getting pilloried for this decision — nobody seems to buy Sergei Brin’s argument that this is about persecution such as that faced by his father in Russia decades back. Why didn’t they worry about this in 2006 when they first came to China? Nobody can find anything good coming out of this situation. R.I.P or good riddance [link]

More general links on China’s economy, the RMB, and the other big case this week, the Rio Tinto case (where a complete and utter lack of transparency alarmed more than a few people):

And finally some other stuff, including the huge drought facing much of the country since last autumn (which we weren’t allowed to talk about until about a week ago because nobody wanted to be a buzz kill for the National Day celebrations last October or for Spring Festival this February.

China & Tech Links, March 22nd, 2010

We’ll start out by looking at the RMB valutation debate raging on in the US. On the US, the “RMB is hugely undervalued” drums are being beat in Washington, and have a surprising ally in Paul Krugman, a normally quite rational and thoughtful person. The first article in this list by James Fallows, somebody whose thoughts on China are usually dead-on, and always worth reading.

[link] How to think about the RMB, “currency manipulation,” and trade war (James Fallows)
[link] Has Paul Krugman gone completely insane?
[link] The Chinese are not the source of our problems, …
[link] Paul Krugman’s China (RMB) fallacy

Next, a bunch of articles on Google’s departure from China:

[link] China state media accuses Google of political agenda
[link] What a Google China exit would mean
[link] China appears to be preparing for Google departure
[link] Google denies ‘exit China’ rumor

I’ve been really busy with my new job here and haven’t been writing as many blog articles as I’d like, but I have still been coming across lots of interesting things I’d like to share with people.

So, I’m going to start an Interesting Reading / Links type of blog post. Almost entirely centred around China and Tech (if not Tech in China). I hope to get back to regular blog-article writing soon.
