About this blog…

I am employed by Netnod as head of engineering, research and development and am among other things chair of the Security and Stability Advisory Committee at ICANN. You can find CV and photos of me at this page.

As I wear so many hats, I find it being necessary to somewhere express my personal view on things. This is the location where that happens. Postings on this blog, or at Facebook, Twitter etc, falls under this policy.

The views expressed on this post are mine and do not necessarily reflect the views of Netnod or any other of the organisations I have connections to.

What is a match?

Google image search for "Tiananmen" (uppercase 'T')

Google image search for "Tiananmen" (uppercase 'T')

Google image search for "tiananmen" (lowercase 't')

Google image search for "tiananmen" (lowercase 't')

If one do searches for tiananmen in Google images, it is interesting that one get so different responses when one searches for “tiananmen” or “Tiananmen”. Notice that the only difference is lower and upper case in the initial ‘t’. I guess the second version will not exist for so long time.

Updated: As of Nov 26 2009, there is no difference in the search results anymore.

There have at least in Sweden been a lot of discussion about the launch of a “censored” version of Google in China. I was myself in radio (P4 Extra) Thursday Jan 26 and talked about it. If you find a recording of the program, I was talking about 13:36-13:45 (the program started at 13:03).
