Google’s Secret China Project “Effectively Ended” After Internal Confrontation Google has been forced to shut down a data analysis system it was using to develop a censored search engine for China after members of the company’s privacy team raised internal complaints that it had been kept secret from them, The Intercept reports. The internal rift over the system has had massive ramifications, effectively ending work on the censored search engine, known as Dragonfly, according to two sources familiar with the plans.

I learned a similar lesson on the importance of being visible after finally getting my company’s beverages on the shelves of major supermarkets.

While this was great for our sales, the exposure of being stocked in a retailer w
