It's the twentieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, if you hadn't noticed, and Google has decided to celebrate by launching a new YouTube channel dedicated to free expression.
Yes, Google and free expression. Despite the web behemoth's best efforts, these two concepts are not always comfortable bedfellows. Most Google execs are probably still wincing at the firm's decision a few years ago to kowtow to the Chinese government and filter web searches.
But enough of the Golden Shield Project, of colluding on some very dubious censorship laws with a regime whose human rights record is at best a little, well, patchy. Forget all of that because now the big G has decided its tools can be used as a force for good.
"This channel is designed to feature your stories and reflections on free expression," wrote Annette Kroeber-Riel, Senior European Policy Counsel at Google, on the firm's blog.
"Tell us about how you or someone you know has taken a stand for free expression. Perhaps you've protested against something you didn't agree with, taken action when someone else's free speech was being suppressed or been inspired by someone who has stood up for the right to speak out."
Presumably the new service is not available in China.
