Searching for Answers: Ethical Considerations of Google's Presence in China

When Jim Caccamo, Ph.D., an expert in computing and telecommunications technology ethics, heard of Google’s recent struggles in China, he knew he’d need to update the curriculum for the Technology, Society and Christian Ethics course he teaches at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia, Pa. The Internet heavyweight recently rerouted all searches from its heavily censored mainland China search engine to its more open Hong Kong engine in the wake of a massive hack on its system in December, which some have attributed to the Chinese government. “Not a lot happens on the Web in China that the government isn’t aware of, and it’s hard to believe they didn’t know about the hacking that happened over the winter,” said Caccamo, who is an associate professor of theology.
