Friday open thread: Zoom and information decoupling

Hi everyone, I have three questions to help start the discussion but please fee free to weigh in with whatever you want:

  1. Zoom put out a statement Thursday admitting they censored and shut accounts after being contacted by PRC authorities. You can read it here - Improving Our Policies as We Continue to Enable Global Collaboration. I was sent the statement by one of Zoom’s PR people, I replied asking them to answer my questions. So far they have not. Does Zoom’s statement make anyone feel confident that they are telling us the full story?

  2. The Trump Administration usually gets most of the blame for pushing “decoupling”, but hasn’t the PRC been pursuing a policy of “information decoupling” for many years, and is only intensifying those efforts?

  3. What is really going on with latest round of China-India border tensions?
