Bay Area SFT Takes On President of Google China

Kai-Fu Lee, the president of Google China, got to hear first hand what SFTers in the Bay Area think about Google's partnership with the Chinese government. Lee is the gentleman dressed in full black (surprise surprise) in the picture at the right. Rockin' SFT HQ alumni Alma has a great quote in the San Francisco Chronicle:

One group critical of Google, Students for a Free Tibet, showed up Saturday, holding signs such as "Kaifu Leevil" and marching outside as Lee gave his talk at Stanford.

Lee left almost immediately after his talk, dodging protesters on his way to his car.

"We hope to get the message to Kai-Fu Lee that we won't stand for censorship," said Alma David, a University of San Francisco law school student and a member of Students for a Free Tibet. "We see a company selling out its values for a profit. Its 'don't be evil' just seems like a bad joke."

Great work SF crew!
