LaJeunesse vs Google

„I Was Google’s Head of International Relations. Here’s Why I Left. – The company’s motto used to be ‚Don’t be evil.‘ Things have changed. … In my new role, my team and I continued to engage with product executives who were increasingly frustrated by the phenomenal growth in the Chinese market and pushed hard for our re-entry into China. I was alarmed when I learned in 2017 that the company had begun moving forward with the development of a new version of a censored Search product for China, codenamed ‚Dragonfly.‘ … Standing up for women, for the LGBTQ community, for colleagues of color, and for human rights – had cost me my career. To me, no additional evidence was needed that ‚Don’t be evil‘ was no longer a true reflection of the company’s values; it was now nothing more than just another corporate marketing tool.“

Ross LaJeunesse

„Former Google human rights chief says he was ‘sidelined’ over censored Chinese search engine – Ross LaJeunesse was Google’s head of international relations … Ross LaJeunesse says company executives were dead set on entering China with some kind of censored search engine, despite comments from Google saying the project was always an experiment. ‚They are determined to do this,‘ he says he realized as executives made decisions about the project without him and other colleagues. ‚They don’t want to hear what I had to say.'“

Kinder im Netz

„Kinder schützen trotz Smartphone, Konsole, Assistenten & Co. – Elektronische Gadgets ziehen Kinder und Jugendliche zunehmend in ihren Bann. Mit technischen Mitteln lassen sich die damit verbundenen Risiken kaum eindämmen. … Alle Gerätschaften bergen das Potenzial, das Kind in unangenehme oder gefährliche Situationen zu bringen. Das Problem, mit dem Kinder online am häufigsten konfrontiert werden, ist Mobbing. Bei der JIM-Studie hat fast jeder fünfte Jugendliche angegeben, dass schon einmal (absichtlich oder versehentlich) falsche oder beleidigende Inhalte über ihn per Handy oder im Internet verbreitet wurden.“
