What will Google Do?

Link to here (TechCrunch). It's more than an academic question as I have been talking with a few people in the development space about this. Do you ignore it? Currently for us, this has no direct operational impact and as such, we have few choices to make but it does reinforce the level of political vulnerability of doing business in China.

For our clients, the primary driving force continues to be about staying competitive. We continue to create jobs in what is one of the largest wealth creation projects ever for a people who were amongst the poorest (and populous) in the world. At what cost this comes at remains to be seen, but for the meantime, I strongly believe our work today will help mitigate any future pain. In the meantime I can't help but watch feeling somewhat helpless.
