Quotation of the Day for July 5, 2011

"There's a special irony when Google CEO Eric Schmidt suggests--as he did in a speech to the Council on Foreign Relations last November--that China's government will find it impossible to censor "a billion phones that are trying to express themselves:" Schmidt is rich because his company sells precisely targeted ads against hundreds of millions of search requests per day. If Google can zero in like that, so can China's censors."

- Evgeny Morozov, The Dark Side of the Net, Wired, January 2011.
