Google balancing out?

googleGoogle is not perfect, but sometimes they do things that make them look they are trying to be wonderful to all people. Their motto is “don’t be evil.” Even though they are self-censoring in China, unlike Wikipedia (something that all ThingsAreGood readers already know), Google has released banned books.

Now you can read books that have been censored somewhere, as long as they are free of private censorship and are in the public domain.

To Kill a Mockingbird. Of Mice and Men. The Great Gatsby. 1984. It’s hard to imagine a world without these extraordinary literary classics, but every year there are hundreds of attempts to remove great books from libraries and schools”

  1. Their formal corporate policy is “don’t be evil” and not “do no evil.”
