This is just a little stange. On Dec 7th, former president Bill Clinton helped launch a new search engine called Accoona. Whats strange about this, is that the primary backer of the new search engine is the Chinese Goverment. The new engine has an exclusive agreement with the Chinese Government giving them access to data about 5 million Chinese companies and puts them in a unique position ahead of the 2008 Summer Games.

Why would the Chinese Government, who works so hard to censor the web for its population, invest in a search engine? Perhaps to better censor, for the Chinese and the rest of the world. :(
