No Profile in Courage to be found here:

Google announced that it is officially launching its services in China, a move that will require the Internet firm to subject itself to self-censorship.

Well isn't that lovely? This should provide plenty of bricks for the Great Firewall of China.

Google staff must be so proud! But they can hate George Bush all the more to make up for their decision. Can't have them thinking they aren't progressive, now can they?

UPDATE: I do believe I may have coined the term "Gulagle" first, having posted it in comments on Caerdroia and Mad Minerva early on January 25th. Interestingly enough, Google doesn't show this post when earlier it was the only post it showed on a search of "Gulagle" related to Google. I hope this spreads. Rather fitting.
