Chinese Go

“Google had anticipated a chance to raise its profile in China, where it hasn’t offered online services since 2010. And in the weeks prior, Google seemed to enjoy the cooperation of local authorities. But two days before the first game, according to two people involved in the event, Chinese state TV pulled out of the match. Then, about a half-hour into the game, broadcasts from other media went dark. Local news outlets did cover the event, but most did not mention Google, apparently under orders from local authorities.”
